Co-sponsored by the Palouse Audubon Society on “Native Bumblebees”

Location: 1912 Center, Great Room, 412 East Third St., Moscow, Idaho.

Presenter: Joel Sauter, IDFG “Native Bumblebees”. Joel Sauder, Regional Wildlife Biologist leads the Diversity Program for Idaho Fish and Game based in Lewiston.  He will present a program on bumblebees on March 4, 2020 jointly sponsored by the Palouse Audubon Society and the White Pine Chapter of the Idaho Native Plant Society.  He has presented a number of programs educating the public about bumblebees and encouraging citizen scientists to help monitor bumblebees.  This includes fascinating information on the biology and life cycle of bumblebees.  Bumblebees are important in our ecosystems and gardens.  Early spring is a crucial time for bumblebees because the queen bee alone must get food, nectar and pollen, for herself and her first batch of worker bees.  Come join us to learn about bumblebees and the key role they play in pollinating native plants. This program is free and open to the public.
