How can IPM save the pollinators? Live web broadcast

The Northeastern IPM Center will host a discussion on the topic of pollinators in a live-streamed web event. The discussion is entitled, “Integrated Pest Management (IPM) and Pollinators: What is the appropriate role for IPM on the issue of pollinators?” The Northeastern IPM Center has invited four speakers from the USDA Agricultural Research Service, the Natural Resources Defense Council, USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture, and the US Environmental Protection Agency to provide an update on current issues surrounding pollinator health. Panelists will share facts about pollinators and pollinator decline, and give some thought to the role that the integrated pest management community, as well as scientific experts, public officials, and citizens, should take to address it.

The event will take place on Wednesday, November 12, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon (Eastern Time) as part of the Northeastern IPM Center Advisory Council meeting in the Washington, D.C. area. Presentations and a panel discussion will be streamed live online.
