The Sequoia Park Zoo Conservation FREE Lecture Series continues with a presentation about very important insects – Bees!
 
The Wednesday, February 8th lecture, Saving California’s Native Bees, will focus on the natural history stories of native bees, including bumblebees and the beach Silver Bee, and discuss how we can make our gardens more bee-friendly.  
 
California is home to more than 1500 species of native bees, which collectively provide valuable pollination services for native and crop plants – and which are sources of beauty, wonder and enjoyment for everyone.  
 
Accelerating changes to our rural and urban landscapes have raised concerns about the continuing ecological health of bee communities and motivated new research aimed at developing and implementing effective conservation strategies.  Key to all of these strategies is an understanding of the various ways that bees make a living.  
 
The presenter, Michael R. Mesler, has taught courses in Plant Taxonomy & Pollination Biology for more than 40 years at Humboldt State University.  His research has focused on interactions between pollinators and flowers, with an emphasis on the natural history and conservation of native bees.
