    Master Pollinator Steward Program (Session 5 of 6)

    When:  Friday, June 15, 2018, 9 a.m. to noon

    Where:  
    North Jefferson City
    1101 3rd Street, Jefferson City MO map...

    Description:

    Pollinators — such as bees, birds, butterflies, bats and insects — play a crucial role in the production of most fruits and vegetables. They also support healthy ecosystems that clean the air, stabilize soils and support wildlife. Studies show that pollinator populations are in decline because of a loss of feeding and nesting habitats, pollution and the misuse of pesticides. Learn how to protect our agricultural economy and food supply with the Master Pollinator Steward program. MU Extension specialists and stakeholders in the field developed this unbiased, research-based curriculum, which includes hands-on activities and classroom presentations.
