Protecting New Jersey's Pollinators hosted by Mercer County Wildlife Center
Time & Place
Mercer County Wildlife Center, 1748 River Rd, Titusville, NJ
Butterflies, bumblebees, moths and other creatures help pollinate over 75% of our flowering plants and crops, contributing to over $29 billion in crops each year. Unfortunately, many of these species of pollinators are struggling to survive.
Join David Wheeler and Blaine Rothauser of the Conserve Wildlife Foundation of NJ on a photogenic tour of the world of pollinators in New Jersey, exploring why pollinators are crucial to our environment, health, food systems and economy. Learn how to help the declining species of New Jersey pollinators with simple steps you can take to protect them in your own backyard.
The nonprofit Conserve Wildlife Foundation has worked for the past 20 years to protect rare wildlife through field science, habitat restoration, environmental education, and engaging the public on how they can make a difference. From bald eagles, ospreys, and peregrine falcons to bobcats and diamondback terrapins, CWF has played a key role in some of America's most impressive recent wildlife recoveries.
