Pollinators including honey bees, native bees, birds, and butterflies, are an irreplaceable public resource. To mark National Pollinator Week, Fresh Energy convened leaders and experts for presentations and the beginning of an ongoing conversation on the topic of how large-scale solar arrays can be built in ways that are beneficial to these important animals.
