S A V E O U R B E E S OPEN TO THE PUBLIC JANUARY 17, 2018 1:30–3:30PM COLASANTI TROPICAL GARDENS COMPLIMENTARY FOOD - RESERVE YOUR SPOT CONTACT RALPH SCASE (519)903-5979 or ralph@ralphscase.com ECOSYSTEM PROGRAM COULD EXPAND LOCALLY (By Bryan Jessop Southpoint Publishing Wednesday, November 22, 2017 pg.5) Leamington and Essex County are on the radar as locations to help take the 'sting' out of declining insect populations. The founder of an ecosystem development program recently launched to address Ontario's rapidly falling number of bees is hoping to find land use contributions in the province's most southerly regions. Delaware resident Rick Tusch, who launched Pollinative to plant native wildflowers as crucial bee habitats, is seeking support for the program the use of farms and developer-owned land to grow plants and flowers commonly favoured by bees and other pollinators. Tusch refers to the proposed series of regenerated ecosystems as 'pollinative pathways' and describes them as crucial in reviving the region's bee population. Tusch explained that only three per cent of Ontario's native grass species still exist in the province – one of the factors that inspired him to plant six acres of 55 different types of native plants on his own property. He also noted that overall bug populations in Ontario have dropped by 70 per cent. Tusch would like to see revitalized populations of Solitary bees – a non-stinging species that is 10 times more effective as a pollinator than the Honey bee – serve as onsite educational opportunities for elementary school classes.
