About the Event

Grab your lunch and join Emily May, Pollinator Conservation Biologist with the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation, to learn about the impacts of pesticides on pollinators, beneficial insects, and wildlife. We'll explore how current pesticide regulations fall short in protecting pollinators and why rethinking pesticides can be crucial for sustaining healthy garden ecosystems. This talk will discuss some of the key pesticide concerns in home gardens and lawns, give you ideas for how to make gardens more resilient to pest pressure, and help you make practical, informed decisions about how to respond to insects, diseases, and other pests as they arrive.Emily May is a Pollinator Conservation Specialist with the Xerces Society's Pesticide Program. She received a master's of science in entomology from Michigan State University, and has studied pollinator habitat restoration, bee nesting habits, and the effects of pest management practices on wild bee communities. Her work with Xerces since 2015 has focused on supporting crop pollinators through habitat creation and protecting bees and other beneficial insects from pesticides.
