Description

According to the Pollinator Partnership, one out of every three bites of food we eat relies on pollinators, such as native bumble bees, butterflies, or domestic honey bees. However, all pollinators have been on the decline in recent decades due to a number of factors. This has led conservation organizations to focus on efforts aimed at increasing pollinators and their habitats.

As part of Pollinator Week, the Missoula Conservation District is hosting The Pollinators, an award-winning film about the beekeeping industry and the many challenges they face while assisting American agriculture. The film will be shown twice on Thursday, June 24 at 4:00 pm and 6:00pm. Missoula Conservation District will be tabling with several partners in the Roxy Garden before both showings to provide additional information on pollinators and seed mix packets to promote desirable pollinator habitat.
