Join The Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC) at 7 p.m. Thursday for a live-streamed talk about the interconnectedness of pollinators to one’s daily life with a special focus on bumble bees from Dr. Will Janousek, biologist with the U.S. Geological Survey.
During this talk, Dr. Janousek will review the unique life history of bumble bees and the history of bumble bee conservation over the last 60 years. He also will discuss human impact on the environment and the role this has played in the decline of the Western Bumble Bee.
