What is the Oregon Bee Project?

Hosted by OSU Pollinator Health and Central Oregon chapter of OSU Master Gardeners

Did you know Oregon has over 500 species of bees, including four species that are actively managed in ingenious ways for crop pollination? Come and learn who these bees are and some of the weird and wonderful features of their lives. The talk will also provide an overview of a state-wide strategy to keep Oregon bee-friendly, a strategy that leverages the patchwork of pollinator-friendly crops and adjacent natural areas in order to strengthen the state’s agriculture.

Speakers:

Sarah Kincaid, entomologist, Oregon Department of Agriculture

Rich Little, entomologist, OSU Master Gardeners
