Welcome to our Pollinator Management Series - seven exciting presenters on four webinar dates in March and April will cover a wide range of topics having to do with best practices for managing natural areas, while ensuring pollinator health and resilience - a topic our members have said is important to them. The Pollinator Management Series will share some of the background and conclusions that will shortly be published in an NAA Synthesis Paper on Pollinator Health and Resilience in Natural Areas Management - stay tuned for more on this important forthcoming resource!
Some of the information contained in this series was originally shared in the Pollinator Symposium at the 2017 Natural Areas Conference. We are grateful for the support of the U.S. Forest Service for this series.
