CAS UPCOMING EVENTS
- October 16th 5:30pm CAS Pre-meeting Bird Walk – Meet at the picnic shelter. Walk will head west towards the Wildlife Conservation Center.
- October 16th 7:00pm – CAS Regular Monthly Meeting – Topic will be ” A Survey of the Native Bees of the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument in New Mexico” by Cali Granger. Though many people think first of the honey bee or bumble bee when they hear the word ’bee’, there are in fact around 4,000 other bee species in the U.S. While we know quite a bit about honey bees and bumble bees, many of our native bees are understudied and little known. Fortunately, a growing desire to “save the bees” led many to become mindful of the important role they play in our ecosystem. Opportunities to study bees around the U.S. are becoming more common and provide much needed information about these mysterious pollinators. Join Cali Granger as she discusses her collaborative, multi-year, native bee collection survey completed at the Rio Grande del Norte National Monument in New Mexico. A study like this has never been done in this region of NM and will provide new and exciting information about the bee species there currently and in the future. Cali received her Bachelor’s in Biology from the University of Mount Union in 2013 and her Master’s in Plant Health Management from The Ohio State University in 2019. Growing up, she has always been an insect lover and has worked with many insect-based research projects. In addition to research, she enjoys presenting insect programs to the public.
