Pancakes with Pollinators … Pollinators with Pancakes whichever way you say it – the gathering at Ohio State Mansfield hit the spot. Participants, including students had the opportunity to observe how research works to create pollinator habitat along Ohio’s utility right of ways, learn about native bees and butterflies, and talk to natural resource experts about the critical need for pollinator habitat. And, enjoy pancakes served with Ohio State Maple Syrup.

The EcoLab event was held during Welcome Week (August 25) on the campus with eight organizations involved.
