Speaker: Sam Droege
Biologist, Sam Droege will reverse the lens and look at native plants from the perspective of a key slice of life that is tied to these plants...bees. Regionally, there are over 400 species of native bees and many are only found on the flowers of specific plants. Why 400? Why not just one kind of bee? The complexity of color, architecture, and phenology of native flowers is a clue to that relationship. Explore the plant-pollinator relationship from the bee point of view and learn why what we plant has consequences for these fascinating creatures.
