Dr. Kimberly A. Stoner presents
“Planting for the Bees’ Needs
Providing Habitat for Honey Bees and Wild Bees”
Sponsored by the Clinton Land Conservation Trust
Monday, October 15th at 7PM at Henry Carter Hull Library
|Did you know that Connecticut has 349 species of bees and honeybees are only one species? Bees are important as they produce honey and wax and pollinate our crops and native wild plants. Come learn about the life cycles of bees, where they live, and what plants they need to thrive and learn how to protect them from pesticides. Our presenter Dr. Stone joined the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station in 1987 after receiving her PhD in entomology from Cornell University. She is currently studying bee diversity in Connecticut and how bees are exposed to pesticides. She works with people across Connecticut, including farmers, beekeepers, and community groups, in creating habitat for pollinators.
This event is free and refreshments will be served. We hope to see you there!!
