An Adirondack community action group is doing its part to promote better awareness of pollinators – like bees and butterflies – in the region. AdkAction executive director Brittany Christenson says the Adirondack Pollinator Project’s mission is to inspire individual and collective action to help pollinators thrive.

This summer there will be a series of lectures, workshops and garden demonstrations, including how weeding the garden by hand and buying local produce can benefit bee habitats.

Christenson says the Adirondack Pollinator Project grew out of a successful Monarch project that AdkAction began in 2014.
