U.S. Forest Service Pollinator Training Workshop

JUNE 29, 2016
HOOSIER NATIONAL FOREST
BEDFORD, IN

Dear Participant:

The USDA Forest Service’s Eastern Region is partnering with the Pollinator Partnership (P2) to develop and execute pollinator training workshops coinciding with Pollinator Week June 20-26, 2016. These workshops will focus on the importance of pollinators, the threats they currently face, and actions to help support them.

Government agencies, non-profits, for-profits, citizen scientists, and pollinator enthusiasts are welcome to join this invitation-only pollinator training workshop to learn and explore more about the importance of pollinators. Properly functioning ecosystems, with pollinator habitat resources intact, are integral to ensuring a sustainable path for the planet and all its life forms.

This is by invitation only and is on a first come first served basis.
