Program Description

Event Details

The world is running out of insects and that's bad news for humans. Research reports that 40% of insects are in decline globally and nearly a third endangered (Biological Conservation, 2019). Learn what insects are "good guys" for gardeners, how creepy crawlies help maintain ecological harmony, and what you can do to help the pollinators and garden allies in your own yard or garden.

This program also launches a new addition to the NVPL Library of Things: The Pollinator Observation Kit. Check out the kit and contribute valuable data as a citizen scientist!
