Vermont Bumblebee Talk with Sara Zahendra

March 20, 2014 8:00 pm
Rockingham Free Public Library
65 Westminster Street, Bellows Falls

Sara Zahendra of Vermont Center for Ecostudies will be giving a talk on native bumblebees on Thursday March 20th at 7:00 pm at the Rockingham Free Public Library in Bellows Falls. The library is an easy half hour drive from Golden Stage Inn Bed and Breakfast, following Route 103 for almost the entire trip. Sara Zahendra will tell the audience about the Vermont Bumblebee Survey, which she is a coordinator for. This survey is a great way for Vermonters to participate in citizen science and contribute to the health and conservation of native pollinators. Learn why Vermont bumblebee populations have been on the decline, and why some species of bumblebee have disappeared altogether. Receive an update on the current status of the Vermont bumblebee, discover this pollinator’s role in the ecosystem, and enjoy light refreshments. The Vermont Center for Ecostudies calls the bumblebee “a silent messenger of environmental health.” Free to the public.
