The lab has excitedly partnered with Nevada Bugs and Butterflies, the Nevada Museum of Natural History, and the Great Basin Community Food Co-op to host a series of events for National Pollinator Week. We believe these to be the first events held to celebrate NPW in Nevada! We plan to grow bigger and better each year, so stay tuned.
"An Evening to Celebrate Pollinators" at the Co-Op, June 20th 2014. Graduate student Jacob Francis presented a brief (18 min) overview of the challenges faced by native pollinators, followed by an in-depth Q&A with local beekeepers, Leonard lab members, and the general public.
