Thursday, April 25, 2013 - 6:30pm to 8:00pm

 

Did you know that 1 out of 4 bites of food we eat is created by bees' pollination? Learn about the important role that bees play in our environment, how to identify the diversity of bees, and how to better track bee populations and trends.

Join entomologist May Berenbaum for a fascinating investigation of bee ecology. What does the bee population tell us about possible ecological shifts due to climate change, human land use changes, and other impacts? The Beespotter program gets you involved with tracking bees in your community, from snapping photos to sharing data.

Dr. Berenbaum is Professor and Head of the Department of Entomology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, a member of the National Academy of Sciences, and chair of the Koshland Science Museum's Advisory Board.
