Event description
A presentation by Wild Ones Honorary Director, biologist, and author Heather Holm discussing "The Bombus Among Us - Bumble Bee Basics"

About this Event

Join Wild Ones Honorary Director, Biologist, and author of 'Bee: An Identification and Native Plant Forage Guide' and 'Pollinators of Native Plants' as she discusses, "The Bombus Among Us - Bumble Bee Basics."

Bumble bees (Bombus) are by far our most charismatic and recognizable native bees. In order to help our bumble bees thrive, we must understand their life cycle and nutritional needs. Heather will illustrate the bumble bee life cycle through the growing season; the importance of selecting the right native (woody and herbaceous) plants to meet the nutritional needs of the queens, workers, and males; their habitat; the impacts on populations from climate change; and common upper Midwestern and eastern bumble bee species. She will also feature species in decline including the federally endangered rusty patched bumble bee.
