What is the Oregon Bee Project?

Multnomah Master Gardeners Speaker Series

Tuesday, April 10, 2018 7:00 PM - Friday, April 13, 2018 8:00 PM

Did you know Oregon has 500 species of bees, including four species that are actively managed in ingenious ways for crop pollination?

Join the Multnomah Master Gardeners Speaker Series as Andony Melathopoulos, Assistant Professor of Pollinator Health Extension in the Department of Horticulture at Oregon State University, shares who these bees are and some of the weird and wonderful features of their lives (you will leave knowing five very cool bees that are frequent visitors in our gardens and backyards). The talk will also provide an overview of a state-wide strategy to keep Oregon bee-friendly, a strategy that leverages the patchwork of gardens, pollinator-friendly crops and adjacent natural areas in order to build on our state’s rich endowment of bee biodiversity.
