Denver Botanic Gardens and Jonny 5 of the Flobots teamed up for this music video to increase awareness about the emerald ash borer insect.
Denver Botanic Gardens strives to entertain and delight while spreading the collective wisdom of the Gardens through outreach, collaboration and education. Their conservation programs play a major role in saving species and protecting natural habitats for future generations.
“The emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis) has been confirmed in Colorado,” says the Denver Botanic Gardens. “This invasive Asian beetle has decimated ash trees in the Midwest since its discovery in 2002, costing millions of dollars to homeowners and cities. Early detection is key to controlling the emerald ash borer! Look for signs of infestation and report them to your county extension office.”
