During the Research Field Tour Dr. Cathy Neal, UNH Extension Professor and Researcher with the NH Agricultural Experiment Station, will share results from ten years of research on wildflower meadow establishment, helping you to successfully plan, prepare, plant and maintain a beautiful and functional wildflower meadow that blooms all season long. Xerces staff will help you identify native bees on the fly and identify their habitat needs.

Special Guest

Mace Vaughan, Co-Director, Pollinator Conservation and Agricultural Biodiversity Program, The Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation, will address Connecting the Dots for Pollinator Conservation: From the Big Picture to the Backyard and the Back 40. Mace will take us on a tour of the growing number of efforts by which citizens, farmers, gardeners, researchers, and others are banding together to turn around the declines in pollinators. Ultimately, this journey ends in your backyard or back forty, where he will discuss fun, effective and beautiful ways to enhance habitat and bring back the pollinators.
