Heard about colony collapse, the mysterious disappearances of bees, and peril to our food supplies? Many of us have been in our backyards, wondering about the diminished hum and buzz around our vegetables and flowers. The good news is that there are steps we can take to increase the resilience of pollinator populations to cope with changes in our environment. Scott Hoffman Black, executive director of the Xerces Society, works every day to raise awareness and protect these small, vital, and often overlooked invertebrates. Join the discussion about the importance of the groups of insects that provide pollination services in North America, and learn about straightforward actions that protect and provide habitats for pollinators.
