‘Pollinators in Peril’ presentation Oct. 16 in Lambertville

Take a fascinating, free photographic tour of the world of pollinators in New Jersey on Wednesday, Oct. 16, at 7 p.m., at the Phillip L. Pittore Justice Center in Lambertville.

Blaine Rothauser, senior ecologist at GZA GeoEnviromental, Inc. and professional wildlife photographer, will explain why pollinators are crucial to our environment, health, food systems, and economy.

Butterflies, bees, moths, and other creatures help pollinate over 75% of our flowering plants and crops, contributing to over $29 billion in crops each year. Unfortunately, many of these species of pollinators are struggling to survive. Learn how to help the declining species of New Jersey pollinators with simple steps you can take in your own backyard.

Lambertville Goes Wild is sponsoring this program to further its mission to promote wider use of native plants in support of local wildlife and a healthier environment.
