MSU-Extension Managed Pollination Protection Plan meetings are gathering important feedback

September 13, 2016

From: Michigan State University Extension

The second of seven listening sessions for the Managed Pollinator Protection Plan was held at the Saginaw Valley Research and Extension Center on Wednesday, Sept. 7, 2016. The attendees represented a handful of groups, including the Saginaw Mosquito Abatement Commission, Midland County Mosquito Control, Miller Chemical, Farmers National Co., Saginaw Valley Beekeepers Association, Michigan State University Extension, commercial beekeepers, Michigan Commercial Beekeepers Association, Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, and sideliner beekeepers.

Following the presentation on the Managed Pollinator Protection Plan given by Mike Hansen, the state apiarist, a discussion was held to gather feedback from the attendants. There were many helpful suggestions and useful information shared that will be used to shape the framework of Michigan’s Managed Pollination Protection Plan. The feedback collected from the listening sessions will be paramount in guiding the next steps in creating the Managed Pollinator Protection Plan.

The next meeting will be held at the Upper Peninsula Research and Extension Center on Sept. 13, 2016, from 2-4 p.m. Thank you to all who took the time to attend the Managed Pollinator Protection Plan Stakeholder listening sessions so far!

There are five more a Managed Pollinator Protection Plan listening sessions you can attend either face-to-face, online or by phone.
