2014 John C. Pritzlaff Conservation Symposium

October 3, 2014

Native Plants Supporting Pollinators: Solutions from Farm to Wildlands ~ Featuring Claire Kremen, 2014 Pritzlaff Conservation Award Recipient ~ Native plants support a higher diversity of pollinators than non-native plants, which makes sense given that they've evolved together over millions of years.

Price of Symposium includes lunch and admission to the Santa Barbara Zoo.
