Kick off National Pollinator Week 2020 and join us for our 3rd annual Pollinator Field Day on June 22 at 3:00pm! Due to current coronavirus circumstances, this event will be 100% VIRTUAL, so you can enjoy the program from the comfort of your home! This event will feature the following presentations to teach you about native bees, habitat and pesticide stewardship:
- Habitat for farms, roadsides or constructed pollinator meadows from seed.
- Native bee identification, life cycle and biology.
- Pesticide application techniques to protect pollinators.
Bees, butterflies, moths and other beneficial insects provide valuable ecosystems services through pollination. These same insects also pollinate the native plants in our rural and urban landscapes, helping to maintain our state’s lush green vegetation. Helping pollinators has never been more important.
Spend part of your day in the ‘field’ with education, research and field-based experts, including a virtual visit to the pollinator habitat at the Cunningham Research Station in Kinston, and see how you can make a positive impact on pollinators through your work.
Registration for Pollinator Field Day is FREE. Register below. The sessions have been approved for two credits for pesticide applicators in classes B, D, G, H, I, L, N, O, and X.
