Bee MycHotels: Using a Native Fungus for Conservation of Native Pollinators
June 24 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
Solitary pollinators are responsible for up to 80% of pollination, yet their numbers are rapidly declining. Fungi offer a potential to buffer solitary pollinator populations by providing sustainable habitat.
Katy Ayers leads a team of Central Community College students in utilizing a native fungus to create nesting habitat for solitary bees and wasps. Through collaboration and communication Ayers and her team hope to increase awareness of solitary pollinators as well as the endless possibilities of fungi.
