This week we had a conversation on the Tuesday Morning Show about two recent studies from the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine,both led by Associate Professor Declan Schroeder.

This morning John Latimer asked DNR Bee Specialist Crystal Boyd "what is THE single easiest, most important thing that any of us could do to increase or help out our pollinators.  Crystal said "Plant local native wildflowers....if you provide it they will come!" 

She also told us about a great resource Bumble Bee Watch, where citizen scientists (that's you!) can post photos and get help with identification.
