We were delighted to co-host a pollinator conversation on Tuesday, January 24th. The event was designed to educate the public on Dr. Gegear's and the Native Pollinator Task Force's work (and the work here in Bedford by our club) in hopes to inspire more interest, leading to more pollinator preservation gardens. Sam Cobin, the Conservation Coordinator with Sudbury Valley Trustees, and a member of the Native Pollinator Task Force presented an introduction to Dr Gegear's work followed by a presentation by Paula Gilarde on the Rotary Club of Bedford's plans for a local pollinator garden.
