Seattle Pollinator Week Symposium with the Common Acre

June 19, 2018 @ 6:00 pm


Wild bees and other pollinators contribute to billions of dollars a year in global pollination services.However, relatively little is known about these precious pollinators in the Puget Sound Region. Join regional experts as they outline some of the habitat and floral resource management techniques that can be used to conserve wild bee pollinators in the Puget Sound Region, with a focus on the installation of pollinator buffer strips and cavity-nest construction. Learn more about the major pollinator groups that utilize these habitats for nests, pollen, and nectar resources. Join us and discuss what our communities can do to conserve pollinators.

Speakers include: Elias Bloom, WSU PhD Candidate; Shantae Johnson and Arthur Shavers of Mudbone Grown, LLC; Bridget McNassar, Native Plant Nursery Manager, Oxbow Farm & Conservation Center; Fern Renville, Teaching Artist at SNAG productions; Raymond Williams, Science Educator, Black Farmers Collective and Yes Farm; and Claudia Castro Luna, WA State Poet Laureate.

Be sure to stop by before the event to learn more information on pollinators and the environment from 6:00pm to 6:45pm at the tabling fair, featuring community organizations such as The Common Acre, Wild Bee Foundation, Stone Soup Gardens, Alleycat Acres, Earth Corps, Central Co-op, Bee City, WA Native Plant Society, Crown Bees, and more.
