Thinking of filling some or all of your garden with native plants?
It's a good idea, said Robert Gegear, PhD, Professor, UMass Dartmouth during his presentation on how ecological data collected through his Beecology Citizen Science Project is being used. With that data, they are gaining insight into the causes of species loss from bee and butterfly pollination systems native to New England. He highlighted the ‘eco-technology’ that has been developed to aid Beecologists.
Dr Gegear is consulting with Wellesley’s Natural Resources Commission in the rewilding of the field adjacent to the library. To watch the recording of his presentation click here (starts at 2:30 min).
