The Indiana Chapter of The Wildlife Society will host the Managing Pollinator Habitat Along the Urban/Rural Gradient workshop on September 24-25 at the Holiday Inn Mishawaka-Conference Center in Mishawaka, Indiana.

The event is part of a series of formal Continuing Educational Workshops initiated by the Indiana Chapter of TWS in conjunction with Purdue University, Department of Forestry and Natural Resources. The training program targets biologists and other natural resource professionals whose work could benefit or impact pollinators. Sessions will include plant and animal diversity in pollinator plantings, designing seed mixes, working in agricultural and urban systems, conservation planning for pollinators and wildlife/pollinator habitat.

Registration is open to both chapter members and non-members. More information on the workshop, including agenda, lodging and paper registration is available here. Interested attendees may also register online. Please contact the Chapter’s Executive Board with any questions.
