Heidi Dobson will discuss Native Pollinators. What is flower pollination, why is it important, which native animals pollinate, and how can we protect and enhance our local insect population. Heidi is a Professor of Biology at Whitman College where she has been teaching since 1992. She holds a MS in entomology and a PhD in botany. Her research addresses bee-flower interactions, with a special focus on wild solitary bees and the plants on which they collect and consume pollen. She has conducted research in different parts of the world, especially Sweden and Walla Walla. You are welcome to bring adult guests.
