Monarchs & Beyond: Pollinator Stewardship Plants & Pollinators Specialization

September 19, 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Plants and Pollinators Specialization: Monarchs and Beyond: Pollinator Stewardship

$50 General Admission, $45 Members

This class will take an in-depth look at the biology and ecology of the monarch butterfly in North America, its migration, species status assessment, and conservation efforts. With an overall 90 percent population decline in the past 20 years, the monarch has become the poster child for pollinators and the subject of research, monitoring and education endeavors. Participants will utilize habitat assessment tools, practice a variety of community science projects, and plan their own pollinator enhancement activities to become pollinator stewards.

This course consists of two elements: a live, online three-hour program and pre-class review assignments (a total of one-hour of content/activities).
• Part 1 – Pre-class Review Assignments (1 hour)
• Part 2 – Online Class Session (3 hours) 9/19; 9am-12pm

Part 1: Pre-class Review Assignments (will be shared in advance of class session)

• Pollinator stewardship
