Our February meeting is going to be a special program and will take place on the FSU campus. Join Josh Campbell from the University of Florida’s Department of Entomology to learn about bumble bees, sweat bees, miner bees, beetles, pollinating flies and other native pollinators. You will learn that many of our insect pollinators are solitary nesters and therefore do not have a colony to defend and are thus quite docile. Many of them nest in the ground and there are things you can do in your yard to encourage them.

This free program is jointly sponsored by Apalachee Audubon, Native Nurseries, FSU Dept. of Biological Science and Tallahassee Garden Club. It will take place at The King Life Science Bldg, 319 Stadium Drive, FSU. Easy and free parking at parking lot and garage on Stadium Drive just south of King Building.
