Our July Guild meeting is tonight:
We have a great speaker lined up, Hamutahl Cohen, who is a Ph.D. Student in Environmental Studies at UCSC. Her research looks at how agricultural practices and urbanization impact pollinators. She’s conducting research on bee-microbe interactions in urban gardens and farms along the Central Coast of California. She’s worked with honey bees and mason bees, but is also fascinated by the diversity of native bee pollinators in California. Her presentation will touch on her mason bee research, bee biodiversity, Colony Collapse Disorder, and tips for gardeners to support bees in their own home gardens.
See you there!
