ORAS Monthly Meeting

Event Date: 
Thursday, March 1, 2018 - 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Christine Fortuin, Ph.D. student at UGA’s Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources, will discuss her research on the importance of wild bees to forest health and how to identify native Georgia bees in this area. Native and wild bees are often neglected in research but are important contributors to forest ecosystems and agriculture. Fortuin will discuss her bee research and provide a practical guide to identifying the major groups of friendly native bees who may visit your garden.

Join us at Sandy Creek Nature Center for refreshments before the meeting, updates about upcoming events, and then learn about these important pollinators through Christine's research!
