Bumblebees are one of the nearly 400 species of native bees we have in the Pacific Northwest that help pollinate fruits and vegetables in our home gardens and our state’s world class agricultural industry. Sadly, their numbers are declining and they need help to survive.
To help us understand this issue, the Master Gardener Foundation of Spokane County is bringing Rich Hatfield of the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation to Spokane on Nov. 2 as the speaker for an annual fundraising dinner at the Lincoln Center in Spokane.
Hatfield will share his insights about his research and field work, about pollinator endangerment and what we can do to help to preserve our pollinators.
