It's National Pollinator Week- Learn about bee and wasp mimics!

Celebrate National Pollinator Week by joining me at the Fort Missoula Native Plant Garden this Thursday (June 21) at 5:30 pm to learn about bee and wasp mimics.  This workshop is presented by the Montana Natural History Center.  I hope to see you there.

I will discuss insect identification in general (i.e., the distinguishing characteristics of bees, flies, beetles, moths, etc...), and introduce the diversity of native bees in Montana and their interesting ecology. And then the exciting part: exploring the Great Deception by flies, moths, and others who mimic the color and shapes of stinging insects!
There is a suggested $5 donation to the Montana Natural History Center, which helps support natural history education for all ages.
