    Track 1: Sustainability, Livability, Resiliency
    The sustainable redevelopment of brownfields may be an excellent opportunity to rejuvenate honey bee and other pollinator populations. Healthy pollinator populations are necessary for supplying about one-third of the food needed by the human population. We depend on bats, birds, bees, butterflies, and other insects to pollinate essential plants and food crops. Many pollinator populations are at risk as a result of habitat loss, invasive species, pesticides, and climate change. Brownfields redevelopment in both the urban and rural environments may hold a promising solution to threats facing the honey bee and other essential pollinators. Come hear how brownfields redevelopment can help sustain the future of the pollinators.
