Northern Neck Soil & Water Conservation District education coordinator Faye Andrashko will present Integrating Native Pollinators into Wildlife Conservation Practices, developed jointly by the Xerces Society, the Virginia Department of Game & Inland Fisheries (DGIF), and the Virginia Habitat Partners.

The program will highlight factors for the decline of certain wildlife species in the U.S. and will focus on whys and ways to help rebuild and sustain these vital creatures, reported Northern Neck Master Naturalists vice president Bonita Wilson.

“Meet some of the important types of pollinators, learn why they’re considered ecological keystones, and consider the approaches and resources we can use on our own properties to best support them and strengthen balance in our natural surroundings,” said Wilson.

Andrashko has been a Certified Virginia Master Naturalist and member of the Northern Neck chapter since 2008. She is a DGIF Wildlife Mapper and an avid pollinator watcher.
