Bluestem has covered pollinator policy debates in the past few years, and so we're excited to learn that this event is happening in our county (via CURE):
State Representative Rick Hansen (DFL – South St. Paul) will be hosting a Pollinator Public Policy Forum on October 10, 2014 at the Clean Up the River Environment (CURE) Office in Montevideo.
Discussion about pollinators and their importance to our food and eco systems, the agriculture industry as well as recently passed pollinator legislation will begin at 11:00 AM followed by a question and answer session. There is no cost to attend.
In addition to Rep. Rick Hansen (presenter), Rep. Andrew Falk will be in attendance and Rep. Jean Wagenius (chair, House Environment Finance committee) has been invited.
The CURE office is located at 117 S. 1st Street in Montevideo.
