Green Ideas & Ham is Environment Minnesota’s monthly breakfast forum, bringing the Twin Cities’ foremost environmental leaders to the breakfast table with you!
Pollinators are an integral part of the world in which we live. Imagine spring without flowers, summer without strawberries, or fall without pumpkins – all of these things could not exist without the ecological work that pollinators perform. Although we tend to think of honey bees and butterflies when talking about pollinators, there are in fact many more species that perform pollination work. Join Environment Minnesota on the morning of February 10th at 8:00 am (doors open at 7:30) to find out about the amazing diversity of insect pollinators found right here in Minnesota.
Joining us to talk about pollinators will be Margot Monson. Margot has her M.S. in entomology and has taught courses in Taxonomic and Aquatic Entomology at the University of Minnesota, in addition to keeping her own bees for the past 6 years. Over the course of her career Margot has also worked for the Department of Forestry and the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, and now performs classroom and community group entomology presentations.
The forum includes delicious breakfast from our generous hosts at the Red Stag Supperclub, serving local sustainably-sourced food in a retrofitted energy efficient building. As always, the event costs $15 for each attendee ($5 to Environment Minnesota and $10 to Red Stag Supperclub).
