Pollinator Survey – Butterflies, Beetles, and Bees, Oh My!

From Friends of Scandia Parks & Trails

Sunday, August 11, 10am-12pm

Native pollinators are vital for many of the fruits and vegetables we eat, and the wildflowers we enjoy. Their numbers have been declining in recent years, and more information is needed to understand what is happening. You can help!

Ages 10+ welcome. Please register early as space is limited. Email Sean.Hoppes@state.mn.us or call 651-539-4986.
