Jody Green, Ph.D., knows a thing or two about bees. An Urban Entomologist and Assistant Extension Educator for Nebraska Extension in Douglas-Sarpy Counties, Jody's buzzing to share her knowledge of these important pollinators to you! Join her on Saturday, January 11 at 9 a.m. for Bee There or Bee Square. Jody's specialty is helping people live in harmony with insects and appreciate the benefits they provide. The presentation will take place at the extension office and she will break down the facts of solitary bees, native bees that are not social but are the work horses of bees. Not to be confused with honey bees, there are more than 4,000 species of native bees and many are unique and fun to observe as they forage for food. There is a $5 fee taken at the door. For that and other details, please visit the Facebook Event Page.
