Bring Back the Pollinators:
Conserving California’s Native Bees and Butterflies
Part 1: Intro to Pollinators and their Conservation Status
This workshop will open a window into the fascinating world of North America’s native bees and butterflies. You will learn about native pollinators’ natural history, their importance to our environment and food supply, and most importantly, the straightforward steps you can take to create lasting change in our urban landscapes to help make your home and your community friendly to native pollinators.
In part one of our two-part webinar, we will talk about the importance of pollinators and learn more about their natural history. Next, we will discuss the conservation status of native bees and butterflies (including the western monarch) and reasons so many of these species are declining.
Speakers: Angela Laws and Sarah Hoyle
