We’ve all heard the news that pollinators are in trouble – hive collapse, monarch and bird population decline – these are global sized problems that can feel too big to change.

But, the thing about change is, when we all do a little bit together, as a whole we can make that big change.

Today we talked about pollinators. We cover what the State of Minnesota is doing through inter-agency efforts to promote pollinator education and habitat development, then hear from a local Master Gardener about what we, as individuals, can do to help make habitat for pollinators in our own yards!

Dr. Rebeca Gutierrez-Moreno, State Pollinator Coordinator
