Join Phyllis Stiles, pollinator champion and Bee City USA founder at the Xerces Society, to learn about the plant and pollinator love affair that supports the reproduction of nearly ninety percent of the world’s flowering plant species. Responsible for 1 in 3 bites we eat, hundreds of thousands of species of bees, butterflies, bats, beetles, wasps, moths, birds, and flies have co-evolved with plants for their mutual benefit. With special emphasis on native bees, Stiles will explain why pollinators are declining and how each of us can help reverse those trends.  This meeting includes a potluck dinner.
