Birds, Bees, and Butterflies in the Land of Milk and Honey
– The challenges & what we can do?
Date: March 20, 2018
Time: 7:30 – 9:00 pm

Addison County used to be known as the “Land of Milk and Honey.” Today the honeybee faces many affronts to its immune system in these days of habitat destruction and pesticide overload. The high colony loss challenges facing beekeepers and the declining bird, butterfly and native bee populations makes it all the more imperative that local beekeepers, farmers, gardeners and homeowners learn healthy ways to assist pollinators and improve their chances of survival. Local beekeeper Ross Conrad will share the “how to” of numerous techniques and lay out a map that we can use to reduce stresses on pollinator health. Come and find out what you can do to help.
