Know Wild - Pollinator Pathway & Native Bees of Central Oregon
This program will be available to watch on-demand beginning March 16th at 3:00 p.m.
Learn how you can help pollinators this spring and get acquainted with native bees in this two part presentation with Basey Klopp of the Bend Pollinator Pathway and Toni Stephan, Horticulture and Small Farms Instructor at the OSU Deschutes County Extension Office.
Get an overview of the Bend Pollinator Pathway, a new project launching this spring in our community. Pollinator populations around the world are in precipitous decline. That is the bad news. The good news is that we know exactly what we need to do to help them. We need to plant food and shelter that pollinators can use to replace some of what has been lost by development and loss of habitat. We also need to connect that habitat so that the vast majority of pollinators can move through our landscapes and find what they need to thrive.
There are well over 500 species of bees in Oregon and the high desert is home to many of them. Learn about and see photos of a few of the native bees in our local area. Short, home videos will be included to show the bees at work. A short list of native plants will be included with the bees to help the viewer identify what plants may be of importance to our native bees.
