Humans have begun to crowd out other species and the race against the extinction of these species on our planet is a contest for limited space. There are many important threats that butterflies, bees, beetles and other pollinators face- pesticides, climate change, parasites- but the principal and universal stress is the loss of habitat. Bee the Change is hoping to create an acre of habitat in each of Vermont’s 252 cities and towns. And we are paying for it by asking businesses and individuals to Plant their Feet. During this presentation you will learn about the "Bee the Change" town pollinator project - bringing communities and pollinators together. You will learn how the project works and what the garden club can do to help achieve their goal.
