Michael Andorsky, a retired pediatrician, is Baltimore City Master Gardener Board Secretary and co-chairman of POLIN, the pollinator initiative committee of the Baltimore City Master Gardeners. He also studies bees as a volunteer for the US Geological Survey in Beltsville, MD. These combined interests have led him to help try to avert the threats facing our pollinators by lecturing on pollinator and gardening issues. Among their many services and educational activities, Baltimore City Master Gardeners help install pollinator gardens throughout Baltimore.
