Let's talk about BEES on Cortes Island!
Where did our bees come from? How did they get here? What's being done to save collapsing colonies? Join renowned entomologist Steven Sheppard, as he shares his experience with these crucial creatures and what we can do to help save their dwindling population. Could our community develop a Cortes Island strain? Steven is the Thurber Professor of Apiculture at WSU, and is working with mycologist Paul Stamets in a major research effort using fungi to improve the health of honey bees.
