Native Pollinators - Beechwood
Pollination is an essential part of a well-functioning and productive ecosystem. Pollinators play a key role in the development of over 150 food crops in the United States. However, scientists have shown long-term declines in pollinator population trends for some North American pollinators, including our native bumble bees. This program discusses our native pollinators and how to help them, including a primer on Bumble Bee Watch, a citizen science program designed to track and conserve North America’s bumble bees in your own yard. The regular $6/member and $10/nonmember fee is waived due to generous funding provided by The Pittsburgh Foundation.
