‘The Buzz on Bees’
September 15, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Clifftop presents “The Buzz on Bees in the Prairie” on Saturday, Sept. 15, at the Monroe County Annex, 901 Illinois Street in Waterloo.
The event runs from 1-3 p.m.
In the middle of a pollinator crisis, every small refuge for pollinators is vital to their survival. The recent restoration of approximately 280 acres of native prairie on the surface of the Paul Wightman Subterranean Nature Preserve has the potential to serve as habitat for pollinators, but has it been successful thus far?
Mickey Schutzenhofer from McKendree University and Gerardo Camilo from Saint Louis University will discuss the bee community that they sampled at the nature preserve last summer and how these communities compare to regional bee diversity.
This seminar is free and open to the public. Register by calling 935-2542 or emailing email@example.com by Sept. 13.
