Bee Expert to Speak at Garden Club
Dr. Casey Delphia will speak at the next Garden Club meeting on the importance of bees in our environment. There are many species of bees that pollinate our plants. Learn how to identify them and discover the difference between pollinating bees and wasps and even flies that mimic bees.
Bees play an important role in natural and agricultural systems as pollinators of flowering plants that provide food, fiber, animal forage, and ecological services like soil and water conservation. In fact, approximately three-quarters of all flowering plants rely on pollinators to reproduce. In addition to honeybees, native bees provide valuable pollination services. Though unknown, the number of native bee species in Montana is likely in the hundreds.
The Garden Club will meet at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, April 1 in the Borden’s conference room. The half-hour coffee social will be followed by the presentation at 10 a.m. and a short business meeting after.
