Speakers: Joanna Rago and Beth Conrey from People and Pollinators action network (PPAN)
Topic: People and Pollinators Action Network (PPAN) works across Colorado to promote sustainable land management practices, safeguard public health and preserve biodiversity to make our state a safe haven for all who live here—from pollinators to people. PPAN is the only organization working at the grassroots, municipal, and state levels to advocate for policies and practices that reduce and eliminate the use of pesticides and to create and connect swaths of pollinator-safe habitat with the intent of reversing the drastic decline of pollinator populations—upon which our very existence depends.
