Topic: Pollinators and Pesticides:
The science & policy behind bee declines

Have you ever felt uneasy using chemicals in your yard and garden, wondering if they are safe for pollinators and other beneficial insects?
Do you know what to beware of when shopping for pesticides?

Our speaker will share with us specific substances found  in many herbicides and insecticides on the market today that play a contributing role in pollinator decline. He will also share resources that we can use for simple research if we have questions about the safety of products.  Learn about policy decisions that brought these bee-harming chemicals to market. Learn how you can make wise and environmentally safe choices by being an informed consumer. 

Speaker: Lex Horan is an organizer with Pesticide Action Network of North America (PANNA), which works to replace hazardous pesticide use with ecologically sound and socially just alternatives. At PAN, Lex works on campaigns to protect bees and other pollinators from pesticides.
