Our guest speaker this month is Dr. Veronica Wahl from the Institute of Urban Ecology at Douglas College. Veronica is the coordinator of the UNIBUG citizen science research project at the College. The goal of UNIBUG is to engage community volunteers in learning about the ecology of urban gardens, with a focus on beneficial garden insects. The UNIBUG project looks at attracting predatory and parasitic insects into urban gardens as well as studying pollinators and their habitat through identifying, counting bees and monitoring bee houses. In this presentation, Veronica will tell us how to encourage local and native bees in the garden, including mason bees and leafcutter bees.
This meeting will be held at
King of Life Lutheran Church
1198 Falcon Dr (SW corner of Falcon and Guildford)
There is parking in the church parking lot, off the Falcon Drive entrance.
** Please note that this presentation is held on the Tuesday immediately prior to our regular Thursday slot. The church is not available to us on the Thursday for this month.
