Webinar: Opportunities for Pollinators Along Rights-of-Way
Please join us on August 18th for an informative introduction to the topic of pollinators and the role that utility and transportation rights-of-way can provide in creating valuable habitat. The Xerces Society of Invertebrate Conservation has been at the forefront of conservation programs targeting pollinators, including recent work with the U.S. Federal Highway Administration and U.S. Department of Agriculture Natural Resources Conservation Service. This presentation was featured at the Rights-of-Way as Habitat Working Group meeting on July 23 and is being presented again for anyone who may have missed it.
