Free, monthly webinars to build skills of community scientists interested in wild bee conservation. All sessions are at 10AM EASTERN on the third Friday of the month, May - November. The same link will allow you to join each session.
A collaborative effort from: the OSU Department of Entomology, The Chadwick Arboretum and Learning Gardens and The US National Native Bee Monitoring Research Coordination Network (RCN).
This program is funded in part by a USDA/NIFA Integrated Pest Management Pollinator Health grant, with support from Davey Tree Expert Company. Many thanks to our funders!
Coordinated by Denise Ellsworth, OSU Department of Entomology
Please note: the focus of this series is wild bee conservation, not honey bee management.
