Class taught by Dr. Bob Gillespie
Have you ever wondered what keeps bees so busy? Why are they buzzing about all day every day? The answer is pollination! Bees, as well as many other small creatures, have one of the most important jobs on Planet Earth to perform. The work of pollination is carried out by a marvelous multitude of birds, bats, bees, butterflies, beetles and other small mammals who are responsible for bringing us one out of every three bites of food. They also sustain our ecosystems and produce our natural resources by helping plants reproduce. Dr. Bob Gillespie has worked with pollinators and taught at Wenatchee Valley College for many years. He brings his expertise and enthusiasm for this life-sustaining group of creatures to a day-long workshop.
