Gary Casabona: Winter Speaker Series 2023

Did you know that biologists estimate there are over 200 different species of native bees in Rhode Island? Gary Casabona’s talk will cover the life cycles of several native bee families and the Monarch butterfly along with their relationships with native plants for pollen, nectar, and nesting sites. The talk will emphasize recommendations on the best native shrubs and herbaceous plants to support our declining species of pollinators as well as practical advice on site prep, seeding, and habitat maintenance. Gary will also discuss the value of some of the recommended plant species for other wildlife, including migratory songbirds.
