Cylburn A talk on Native Bees of Maryland October 4

 This is from Gene Scarpulla:

Now that I’m retired from the City of Baltimore, I’m an Associate at the USGS Patuxent Wildlife Research Center Bee Inventory and Monitoring Laboratory.  I have attached a PDF of my yearlong bee survey on Hart-Miller Island. I’m currently finishing identifying the bycatch of wasps from that survey (Another article will follow.).  Next, I have about 10,000 specimens to process from Poplar Island in a cooperative effort with USF&WS on the bees of Poplar Island (Another article will follow.).

Also, I will be giving a talk on “The Native Bees of Maryland” for the Baltimore Bird Club on Tuesday, October 4, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. at the Cylburn Arboretum.  Here is the announcement info:
