Thank you to everyone who attended and contributed to the event!

Are you wondering how many continuing education hours this event is worth? 
If you attended the keynote (1 hour), all three concurrent sessions (1.25 hours each; 3.75 hours total), and the plenary session (1 hour), that amounts to 5.75 hours of class time/continuing education. Note: For various reasons, these hours are not tracked/applied to specific Advanced Training Certificates.

Protect and Conserve Pollinators and Natural Enemies in our Landscapes
Insects provide beneficial ecosystem services such as biological control of plant feeding insects, and pollination of food crops and flowering plants in natural and managed environments. Beneficial insects can be negatively affected in managed and disturbed environments. This presentation will briefly discuss measures towards protecting and conserving these insects, including the use of flowering plants, with some emphasis on descriptions of beneficial insects and their identification and diversity.
