Speaker Randy Johnson of Randy Johnson Organics will speak on “Pollinators and Natives: An Ancient Marriage.”  One-sixth of all described species on Earth are angiosperms, the flowering plants. Their co-evolution with pollinators is the most important relationship in the terrestrial environment. These two entities co-evolved with and for each other, their healthy relationship is vital to the structure and maintenance of almost all terrestrial ecosystems. This ancient marriage is threatened... what are the issues and how can we help? This and more are discussed.
