This special Field Talk will take you into the wild for a discussion of pollinator conservation efforts. Jody Johnson established her own company, Cullaborate, in 2014 to research pollinator health and raise pollinator awareness. Jody will speak about the status of bees and her work with bees in Maryland, including at the Maryland Zoo. Learn what field experts are doing to conserve these important animals and how the Maryland Zoo is helping to support conservation efforts while sipping a brew that likely itself only exists due to the work of bees!
This event takes place at Union Craft Brewing – 1700 W 41st St #420, Baltimore, MD 21211. Doors open at 6:30; talk begins promptly at 7:00.
