Give Bees A Chance: A Workshop on Pollinator Conservation

As part of Sheridan’s biodiversity initiative, we are excited to offer two hands-on workshops on the conservation of pollinators this Fall. These workshops are one of the three components of the Wildflower and Pollinator Protection and Enhancement Program created by the Office for Sustainability and supported by the TD Friends of the Environment Fund.

The first pollinator workshop will be held next Thursday, September 27 at the Trafalgar Campus. In this interactive workshop, participants will join conservation ecologists from Pollinator Partnership to learn about the diversity of bees in our community, the latest science on conservation issues, and the concrete actions you can take to make a difference.

Pollinator Partnership is a non-profit dedicated to the protection of pollinators through conservation, research, and education. Bees, butterflies, birds, bats, and beetles that pollinate are responsible for bringing us one out of every three bites of food, and also sustain our ecosystems by allowing over 87% of flowering plants to reproduce. Growing scientific evidence is revealing that these animals and their pollination services are in trouble and need our help. Pollinator Partnership works in communities across North America to make a positive difference for these unique creatures and to raise awareness for the crucial ecosystem services they provide

Below are the details of the workshop:
