Sustainability Partnership of the Mattapoisett Library

What good are bees and why should we save them? The Sustainability Partnership of the Mattapoisett Public Library will showcase Dr. Robert Gegear, an assistant professor in the Department of Biology at UMass Dartmouth to answer those questions and more on Wednesday, May 15 from 6 pm to 7:30 pm in the Mattapoisett Library Meeting Room.

            Dr. Gegear will share his knowledge and expertise on pollinators and the importance of these creatures while answering mystifying questions about plant pollinators, their secret lives and the fundamental role pollination systems play in supporting agriculture and wildlife diversity. Dr. Gegear will conclude his talk with an overview of citizen science efforts to support bee conservation efforts.
