Bumble Bees : Natural History and Conservation
Did you know that nearly 300 species of bees are native to the Upper Valley? These animals are not maintained by farmers, yet they provide the majority of pollination service to wild and cultivated plants, and are thus critical to human and ecosystem health. Like managed honey bees, some wild species ~ in particular bumble bees ~ are now in a worrying state of decline.
Please join us on Tuesday, April 30 at 6:30 pm as Leif Richardson, a PhD student at Dartmouth College, discusses the natural history and ecological roles of bumble bees in northeastern North America, including threats to their persistence and conservation measures to address population declines.
