Webinar: Creating Community with Our Insect Neighbors
Join Nancy to learn about common insects in our communities and how to support them. Nancy will highlight the difference between solitary and social wasps and bees, “beneficial” insects in agriculture, and ways we can support insects in our neighborhoods and broader communities.
While most of us are familiar with host plants for butterfly caterpillar specialists, she will also highlight plants and their specialist bees in the hope that you will help better document them via iNaturalist.org and Bugguide.net.
