Lecture & Readings / Cooperative Extension

The movement to save the bees is ever growing, but how much do you really know about native pollinators in your yard? Dr. Wilson will dispel the common myths of bees, provide engaging accounts of the bees encountered in this region of the world, give us clues for telling these stunning creatures apart, and help us understand what we can really do to save the bees. Dr. Joseph Wilson is an expert on North American bee species, as well as an assistant professor of biology at Utah State University, author of The Bees in Your Backyard, and recent TEDxUSU presenter. We will also have copies of Dr. Wilson’s book The Bees in Your Backyard: A Guide to North America’s Bees available for purchase. A short book signing will follow the presentation. Be sure to register to ensure your spot!
