Urban-dwellers have significantly different lifestyles than their country cousins. Kass Urban-Mead, a PhD student in Cornell University's Entomology Department, will demonstrate how this is true for bees of the world, and how trees can help city-bees thrive in a fun and insightful workshop at the Poughkeepsie Underwear Factory. 'Bee' ready to learn about the ecology, flower visiting choices, and habitat requirements of wild bees living in urban environments!
This workshop is hosted by the Environmental Cooperative and has been funded in part by a grant from the New York State Environmental Protection Fund through the Hudson River Estuary Program of the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. It is free and open to the public. Contact Kat Rosemond: karosemond[at]vassar.edu, 845-437-7435 with any questions.
