ACT’s Speaker Series: Pollinators-What You Can do to Help
LITTLETON – Is your garden or yard pollinator friendly? Why does it matter? Join the Ammonoosuc Conservation Trust (ACT) on Friday, April 26 from 6 to 7:30 pm at the Littleton Senior Center to learn about our native pollinators both common and rare, and why they are such an essential part of our world. Our special guest speaker is N.H. Fish and Game Wildlife Biologist Heidi Holman.
We’ll hear about a variety of common, threatened, and endangered moth, bee, and butterfly species in our state. Holman will update us on the well known and beloved monarch butterfly, which is currently being reviewed for federal listing as endangered after significant declines across their range. The presentation will include actions all of us can take to help keep our native pollinators healthy and in abundance.
Holman is a New Hampshire native and returned to the state after receiving her M.S. degree from the University of Minnesota in conservation biology. Now at N.H. Fish & Game she’s working on projects to help recover populations of the endangered Karner blue butterfly and the New England cottontail rabbit.
This Friday evening lecture, part of ACT’s monthly speaker series, is free and open to the public and donations are welcome and gladly accepted. The program is geared toward adults and older children, but all are welcome. Save your spot by pre-registering at http://www.act-nh.org/education-events.
