Join the Colorado Pollinator Summit on Nov. 9

November 1, 2022 Sonya Anderson , Horticulturist

I am immensely proud that Denver Botanic Gardens is hosting the 2022 Colorado Pollinator Summit on Wednesday, November 9. Open to the public, the theme is “Scaling Pollinator Conservation for a New Era: Growing, Progressing, Transforming.” And this year it is in person!

The Summit features keynote speaker Dr. Stephen Buchmann, co-author of the seminal book “The Forgotten Pollinators.” Dr. Buchmann is a pollination ecologist specializing in bees, and an adjunct professor with the departments of entomology and of ecology and evolutionary biology at the University of Arizona. He will speak about the diversity, natural history and importance of native bees.

Other speakers, special guests and panel discussions cover topics from balancing honeybee keeping with conserving native species, enacting policies for change, health impacts of native-plants policy and how to grow conservation work through a Pollinator Action Plan. 

The Summit is in its seventh year and presented by the Colorado Pollinator Network (CPN). CPN consists of Colorado entities that, caring deeply about pollinators, are working together to conserve them. This includes Butterfly Pavilion, City of Boulder, CSU State Extension, CU Museum of Natural History, Denver Audubon, Denver Botanic Gardens and People and Pollinators Action Network. Its focus is to share information about best practices, resources and knowledge to support education initiatives, conservation, restoration and creation of habitats and research on pollinators in the state. The Summit is one vehicle to achieve this.

Please join us for this inspiring, educational and thought-provoking event. Register today.
