Pollinator Protection Conference

Michigan State University is sponsoring a pollinator protection workshop in the mountains of North Carolina (Asheville area) October 12-14.  Cost $180 registration plus lodging.  This should be an excellent opportunity for anyone wanting to get an overview of the pollinator and insecticide controversies (especially in urban landscapes) currently being debated within and without the entomology community.

See attached preliminary program. Website http://www.ornamentalpollinators.org/registration.html. Speakers include Rufus Isaacs from Michigan State University, David Tarpy from NC State University, Emily Minor from University of Illinois, Jane Memmot from the University of Bristol and more.
