Native Bees Talk Presentation with Sam Droege
June 14 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Learn All About Supporting Our Native Bees!
Sam Droege of the USGS is sharing his wealth of knowledge about North American Native Bees! These beneficial pollinators work a little differently than their non-native cousins, so it’s important to know how to identify them and how to help support their populations in our area. He will present at 12pmon Tuesday June 1 inside the Patuxent Showroom.
Sam Droege is a Wildlife Biologist at the Eastern Ecological Science Center in Laurel, MD.
Sam has coordinated the North American Breeding Bird Survey Program, developed the North American Amphibian Monitoring Program, the BioBlitz, Cricket Crawl, and FrogwatchUSA programs and worked on the design and evaluation of monitoring programs. Currently he is developing an inventory and monitoring program for native bees, online identification guides for North American bees at www.discoverlife.org, and with Jessica Zelt reviving the North American Bird Phenology Program.
