MDC Wild Webcast: The Buzz About Pollinators -- June 21

News from the region

Jun 14, 2016

We can’t survive without plant pollinators, such as butterflies, bees, and birds. They are essential to producing foods we eat and food and shelter wildlife needs. And they are in trouble! Monarch butterflies and the milkweed they need to survive are in serious decline. Bees are also facing drastic declines.

Join us on Tuesday, June 21, from noon - 1 p.m. to learn how butterflies, bees, and other pollinators help us, what threatens them, and how you can help. This MDC Wild Webcast will feature a conversation with MDC experts, include plenty of pictures, and then be open for questions from webcast participants.


  • Why pollinators are important to us;
  • Why they are important to wildlife;
  • What threatens them; and
  • How you can help.

REGISTER TODAY for The Buzz about Pollinators.

  • Be Bear Aware on Sept. 8 from 2-3 p.m.
