Author and biologist Olivia Carril is returning to Ohio in September for two events focused on wild bee biology and identification. Register soon, as space is limited for both events!
Catch the Buzz Wild Bee Workshop
Friday, September 8 from 10AM to 3PM
Stratford Ecological Center in Delaware
Fall Nature Safari: Exploring the Hills of Southern Ohio
Wildflowers, Caterpillars, Bees, Birds, Butterflies and More!
Shawnee Lodge & Conference Center located in Scioto County
Join experts for an immersive weekend experience focused on late summer blooming native flora – goldenrod and asters – and the bees, birds and butterflies that are dependent on them. Indoor and outdoor experiences include lectures, day trips and nighttime nature exploration.
Expert presenters include Dr. Olivia Carril, author of The Bees in Your Backyard: A Guide to North America’s Bees, Jim McCormac, author of the recent publication Gardening for Moths: A Regional Guide, Dr. Randy Mitchell, Ohio bumble bee expert, and Judy Semroc, author of Dragonflies and Damselflies of Northeast Ohio.
Both events represent partnerships with OSU Entomology and OSU’s Integrated Pest Management grant, sponsored by NIFA. I hope to see you at one or both events!
