Wildlife in a Changing Climate: The Secret Lives of Wild Bees
June 15, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
This program is the third of Kestrel’s 2023 Wildlife & Wild Plants in a Changing Climate Speaker Series.
You’ve probably heard “Save The Bees!” but do you know which bees need saving?
Over 4,000 species of bees inhabit North America, and most don’t live in hives or make honey. These wild bees come in every size, shape, and color you can imagine, and they live all around us, hiding in plain sight. In this online presentation, PhD student and bee expert Nick Dorian will introduce you to the wild bees of New England. Together, we’ll examine their varied lifestyles, habitat needs, and intricate relationships they have with flowering plants and other insects. You’ll come away charmed by these tiny pollinators and with clear action items for how to support them in your backyard.
Join us for this webinar on Thursday, June 15 at 7:00 pm. Nick’s presentation will be approximately 60 minutes, and he will be available for a Q&A session afterwards.
Nick Dorian is an ecologist, an educator, and a naturalist. He is a PhD student at Tufts University where he studies the population ecology of solitary bees in natural and urban landscapes. He also runs the Tufts Pollinator Initiative, an urban-pollinator conservation and community outreach group.
