This event is organized by VPIRG and co-hosted by Audubon Vermont and other allied organizations.
Bees and other pollinators are integral to our food systems, ecosystems, and biodiversity. But they are dying off at an alarming rate. One of their biggest threats is the widespread use of toxic neonicotinoid pesticides (neonics). In collaboration with VPIRG and many partners, our goal is to stop the use of neonic-treated seeds in Vermont and support farmers in the use of sustainable alternatives.
Please join us for this free event on August 31st, 5:30-7:30 at ECHO Leahy Center for Lake Champlain. Learn how you can help protect our pollinators from pesticides and create pollinator friendly habitats in your yard. This event will feature talks from Paul Burns: Executive Director of VPIRG, Samantha Alger of the UVM Bee Lab, and Charlie Nardozzi from All Things Gardening on Vermont Public.
