Planting for Pollinators – Addressing the Very Real and Hidden Risks of Systemic Pesticide Contamination

March 16 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm PDT

Free

Are your pollinator-friendly plants pesticide-free?  Studies are showing that too many landscape plants and trees are pre-treated well before sale with long lasting pesticides, including both insecticides and fungicides.  We don’t want to betray the pollinators we are working to save by luring them to flowers that potentially can cause them harm. Learn how to ask the right questions to get the correct answers from your nursery, tree broker or landscape professional. Join us for a conversation about pre-treated plants and trees with Dr. Susan Kegley, Pesticide Toxicologist and organic farmer, Aimee Code and Sharon Selvaggio of Xerces Society, and Podcaster Terry Oxford along with Kreigh and Ashley of Burbank’s Monarch Mile.
