"What's the Buzz?" Scheduled for November 17
The Native Pollinator Task Force (NPTF) of the Metrowest Conservation Alliance is sponsoring a program on the relationship between pollinators and plants.
For almost two decades, pollinators have been declining at an unprecedented rate. These declines pose a significant threat to environmental health.
The NPTF program will feature Dr. Robert J. Gegear, a biologist at UMass Dartmouth, who will describe his research on bumblebees and will discuss why native plants are important for our ecosystems. Dr. Gegear is the founder of the Beecology Project, an initiative to protect native bumblebees through citizen science. Learn more about his research at Gegear Lab.
