Why We Need Our Bees: Native Bee Biology and Conservation
Selected date Saturday October 07
Selected time 10:00 AM  –  12:00 PM

While the honey bee gets the most attention native bees are abundant in almost every garden and often go unnoticed. Join UC Riverside entomologist Quinn McFrederick, PhD., on this garden talk and walk as he introduces the biology of some common native bees, their importance as pollinators, and the threats they are facing.

Bring a hat, water, comfortable walking shoes, and all your questions and join us first in the East Classroom where Dr. McFrederick will give a short introductory talk before taking you out on the garden trails.

Saturday, October 7, 10 am - 12 pm

Registration is required and space is limited so sign up early!

$25 Public, $20 RSABG Members

The East Classroom and Garden Trails are wheel chair accessible.

Quinn McFrederick is an Assistant Professor and Entomologist at the University of California, Riverside. For the past 15 years he has been studying the conservation of wild bee pollinators. Most of the McFrederick Lab's research focuses on the microbial symbionts of bees, both disease causing microbes and beneficial microbes.
