Did you attend the Pollinator Habitat talk on September 26? Please join Dartmouth Natural Resources Trust and Dr. Robert J. Gegear at Helfand Farm for this follow-up walk!

Dr. Robert Gegear will lead us as we spend a bit of time indoors learning about bee identification and then head outside to test our skills. We’ll observe the different variety of bees here at DNRT and  which plants are attracting them.

Dr. Robert J. Gegear is a Professor in the Department of Biology at University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. Dr. Gegear’s research focuses on the neuroecology and conservation of plant-pollinator interactions, with particular focus on bumblebees pollination systems. He is also the Director of the Beecology Project, a citizen science effort to rapidly collect ecological data on pollination systems in New England in order to increase the effectiveness of conservation strategies for threatened species. For his community outreach activities related to the Beecology Project, Dr. Gegear was awarded the 2018 Regional Impact Award by the Native Plant Trust (formerly New England Wildflower Society).
