US (MI): MSU holds pollinator health meetings

Local Michigan State University Extension educators are partnering with MSU researchers to create three Pollinator Health Meetings this spring to discuss projects MSU and the opportunities in your area for supporting pollinators. This is part of a three-year, U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA)-funded project that aims to support honey bees, wild bees and monarch populations across Michigan.

The educators are looking to have constructive discussions with beekeepers, growers, conservation districts, land managers, utility companies, road and drain commissions, and others with the potential to support pollinator health. There will be a short presentation of current projects, followed by a discussion with Extension educators and researchers on how they can support and build local efforts towards pollinator health in your region.

Each of these meetings will last for 2 hours and have a similar schedule. The event will open with sign-in and a short introduction, followed by a research update presentation by MSU staff, followed by time for a discussion of the locally-relevant approaches to improving pollinator health.
