Bees, mosquitoes lead CFC Winter Program Series
Dec 28, 2015 3:10 PM -
Bees, trees, and mosquitoes. Citizens for Conservation's Community Education Committee speakers will discuss all three subjects -- along with plant conservation -- in its winter program series, beginning Saturday, Jan. 9. "Native Bees in the Garden," the first program, will feature Adrian Fisher, sustainability coordinator at Triton College. She will discuss how to create a garden that functions as an ecosystem for native bee species. Most people recognize the nonnative honeybee, but few are familiar with the many species of native bees, our finest, most efficient pollinators. Learn how to create a garden for native bees like bumblebees, mason bees, and sweat bees. The program will include Fisher's stunning bee photographs.
