Pollination: Science and Stewardship

The Entomological Society of British Columbia, the Royal Saskatchewan Museum and the British Columbia Ministry of Environment jointly invite you to a symposium on the science and stewardship of pollinators.

Monday, March 20, 2017, 8:30am – 4:00pm
University of British Columbia, Okanagan Campus
3333 University Way, Kelowna, BC
UNC Ballroom, University Centre 2nd Floor

Through the process of pollination, bees, flies, beetles, and moths and butterflies enable the reproduction of plant species and the production of many of our food crops. These valuable wild and managed pollinators have been declining due to habitat loss, pathogens, pesticide use, and climate change. This symposium on pollinators will feature experts from across Canada sharing their insights into the biology of pollination and of stewardship actions that can contribute to conserving pollinators and the ecosystem services they provide. This symposium is for everyone interested in pollinators – lands managers, conservation specialists, NGOs, biologists and lands stewards across governments, farmers, naturalists, resource professionals, students and academics.

This event has concluded! See you next year!
