2016 Quad Cities Pollinator Conference
The 2016 Quad Cities Pollinator Conference was hosted by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Nahant Marsh and planned by representatives from several organizations concerned with pollinator health.
They invited researchers, educators, small and large farmers, governmental agencies, conservation workers, backyard gardeners, and chemical companies to make the conference an open dialogue that focused on all facets of the problem and explores solutions.
There has been a significant pollinator decline over the past few decades. Pollinators are necessary to ensure our food supply. This symposium covered plant-pollinator relationships, pollinator decline, and how everyday citizens, farmers, and landowners, can make a difference.
