An Arts Night Out
Beyond Flowers: Host and Nest Needs of Lesser-considered Flower-visitors - with Adam Kohl, naturalist. Friday 4/14 6-7pm with Q&A after presentation.
A slideshow review of flower-visiting insects photographed and collected in Wendell, MA with an emphasis on unusual species (flies, moths, wasps, and beetles) that have surprising host needs such as fungi, lichen, carrion, water, bird's nests, skin flakes, trees, plant roots, etc. The concept is to give folks a more expansive and holistic view of what comprises "pollinator habitat".
