Native Bees and Pollinators with Jennifer Lund
September 5th: 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Jennifer Lund will lead an outdoor presentation on Native Bees and Pollinators at Merryspring Nature Center on Tuesday, September 5 at 12:00 pm.
This is your chance to learn answers to all your questions about Maine bees, such as ‘What types of bees are found in Maine?’ and ‘Why are some bee species in decline? What can we do to protect bee populations in Maine? What plants encourage bees into our landscapes?’ Jennifer’s talk will focus on understanding basic bee biology, nesting requirements, and foraging behavior in order to answer these and many other common questions about bees.
Jennifer Lund is the State Apiarist with the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation, and Forestry. She received her Master’s degree in Entomology from the University of Maine and has over 20 years of entomological experience. Aside from managing the honeybee inspection program and helping Maine beekeepers, Jennifer has several of her own hives she maintains on her farm in Argyle Township, Maine.
This program is part of the Tuesday Talk series at Merryspring, sponsored by Renys, A Maine Adventure; co-sponsored by First National Bank and Camden Riverhouse Hotel.
