Greene County News

XENIA — Greene County will host the final stakeholder meeting of the Ohio Pollinator Habitat Initiative from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 26, at the Greene County Service Center, 541 Ledbetter Road.

The Ohio Pollinator Habitat Initiative is working with its partner organizations to secure input from farmers, beekeepers, gardeners, food consumers, food retailers, pesticide applicators, pesticide companies, mosquito control districts, public and private land managers and others interested in developing a plan to improve the health of Ohio pollinators.

All attendees will receive the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Bee and Wasp Guide.

The meeting will be a facilitated discussion focusing on the threats to Ohio pollinators, the strengths Ohio offers to impact the threats and the actions required to help pollinators.

The Ohio Pollinator Protection Plan (OP3) will serve as a communication tool and guide the action to improve the survival of pollinators across Ohio.

Participants may offer input through interactive, facilitated discussion at the meeting or share thoughts through an on-line survey.

Seating is limited. Stakeholders groups are asked to send one representative per organization or company.
