Bradner is one of 20 sites around Puget Sound where WSU graduate student Elias Bloom is conducting a study of native pollinators.
Eli is scheduled to be at Bradner on July 17, Friday. So if you see him and have any questions regarding his study, please introduce yourself.
He is also hosting a series of workshops where you can learn about bees and pollinators – learn more below, and note all workshops are free!
There is tremendous interest these days in the role pollinators play in our food system and the valuable agroecological services they provide. Join WSU doctoral student and pollinator entomologist, Eli Bloom, and explore the relationship between plants, pollinators and the tools we can use to save these precious organisms. Bloom will deliver easy techniques to help you create a working knowledge of flies, wasps, beetles, bugs, butterflies and, all kinds of bees! Investigate these fascinating creatures as Bloom gives you hands-on tools to record, measure and track your observations over time. The objective of this workshop is to create a group of citizen scientists to monitor pollinator communities and empower learners of all ages through science-based community action!
