As a member of a land-grant institution, we enthusiastically participate in extension activities that aim to improve agricultural practices through education.
This includes contributing to articles and factsheets, presenting at commodity group events, and meeting with stakeholders to hear about their concerns first hand.
However, promoting insect pollinator health requires a collaborative effort that reaches far beyond the typical agricultural setting. For example, land devoted to housing, commerce, recreation, and infrastructure, can also affect pollinators. This means that nearly everyone in society has a role to play.
By teaming up with the Alabama Cooperative Extension System, we are working to improve communication and education in a manner that respects our environment while safeguarding food security.
