Are you a researcher studying pollinators in Colorado? Or an educator teaching about pollinators? Perhaps you’re just curious about the state of Colorado’s pollinators and what you or others can do to help.
If so, please join us for the 5th Annual Colorado Pollinator Summit, to be held virtually on Thursday, November 5th, 2020. Colorado State University Extension has organized a diverse array of speakers in sessions on Colorado Pollinator Research, Education, Management and Policy. Virtual attendees can attend a live plenary from Dr. Dave Goulson, and can participate in live panel discussions on issues surrounding Colorado pollinators, and how we can bridge disciplines to promote conservation actions in order to protect pollinator habitats and foster pollinator diversity.
