The Buzz About Urban Pollinators

Join moderator Timothy Beatley, professor at the University of Virginia and founder of the Biophilic Cities Network, Gary Krupnick, conservation biologist at the National Museum of Natural History, Catherine Werner, sustainability director for the City of St. Louis, and other experts for a discussion about projects that are benefiting both people and pollinators in urban environments.

Learn about successful projects such as St. Louis's "Milkweed for Monarchs" initiative, as well as Smithsonian research, including the National Museum of Natural History's Pollinator Garden. Participants will discuss government and grassroots recommendations for sustaining healthy pollinator populations.
