In the new year, our minds turn to growth. For the northern hemisphere, this is the season of saving and ordering seeds, of anticipation for our invertebrate friends to emerge again from their winter homes.

It has certainly been a season of growth for the Xerces Society. As we move on from our 50th anniversary year, we welcome an abundance of new staff, offer new opportunities for learning, and invite all of you to join Xerces’ invertebrate conservation mission with a new video message. Thank you for your ongoing support. We’re excited for the blooms ahead in 2022!
