We recently shared a post here on 1812Blockhouse looking at the Ohio Department of Transportation’s plans to create pollinator habitats along Ohio roadways (that post can be read here).
At The Ohio State University at Mansfield, that activity is already underway. On Tuesday, September 10, those efforts will be showcased in an Ecolab event – “Bee the Power for Our Food.”
Pollinators will be center stage at this Ecolab event. Visitors will learn how the campus is working to create pollinator habitats along Ohio’s utility right-of-ways, and have the opportunity to visit with specialists at displays on beekeeping, pollinator habitat, invasive species, and land management.
Self-guided tours of pollinator plots and the campus microfarm, where pollinators work on all levels, will be available. Stop to talk with experts along the way! From 3:00-4:00 PM, you can take a bee walk with Denise Ellsworth.
This is a free event, and there is no need to register. Free refreshments will be provided.
The event is in collaboration with the Ohio State University College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, First Energy, and The Ohio State University at Mansfield.
