Default Native Bee Management Workshop in Madison, WI May 15

A native bee management workshop will be presented this Friday, May 15, in Madison, WI.
In this workshop, participants will learn the basic practices necessary to manage populations of solitary cavity-nesting leafcutter and mason bees. Various members of these species are effective pollinators of all major bee pollinated Wisconsin crops.
A morning classroom session at the UW-Madison Arboretum will provide an overview of the biology of these bees and a discussion of their management systems.

Following a break for lunch (on your own), the workshop will re-convene at Gardens of Goodness in McFarland, an organic apple orchard and a market farm to view and observe a managed population of these bees at work.

A workshop textbook is included in the registration price, and other materials will be for sale at the event.
Eric Mader is the National Pollinator Outreach Coordinator at the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation, and Adjunct Assistant Extension Professor of Entomology at the University of Minnesota.

Age is a biological fact.
Old is a state of mind.
I will age, but I refuse to get old.
