ST. PAUL, Minn. (PRWEB) April 03, 2013
In an effort to foster education and collaboration between growers and beekeepers, the Bayer Bee Care Program will travel to the University of Minnesota on April 3 as it concludes its Bee Care Tour throughout the Midwest. Held at the University of Minnesota’s Cargill Building in St. Paul, Minn., the event will bring together leading researchers and beekeepers to promote science-based solutions aimed at improving honey bee health. The event will arm growers with top stewardship practices and will host presentations on pollinator health from the Director of the University of Minnesota Bee Lab, Dr. Marla Spivak’s graduate students.
“The University of Minnesota is a strong advocate of advancing bee health," said Adam Fischer, development officer for the University of Minnesota’s College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences. “By hosting the Bayer Bee Care Tour on campus and engaging graduate students, we hope to heighten discussion and encourage the sharing of ideas among key bee health stakeholders."
The Tour will bring a specially-wrapped vehicle along with an interactive exhibit to provide stewardship displays and expert presentations on issues impacting honey bee health to the Minnesota community. Additionally, attendees will have the opportunity to become a champion for bee health, a Bayer initiative encouraging stakeholders to make pollinator health and stewardship a priority when planting.
