Program on native bees

The Potomac Valley Audubon Society will sponsor a morning program in Berkeley Springs on Saturday, November 18.

The program will be held at 10 a.m. at the Morgan County Board of Education building at 247 Harrison Avenue.

It will feature a presentation entitled "Bee Basics," which will focus on native bees.

Admission is free and everyone is welcome to attend.

The speaker will be Dr. Larry Stritch, a retired U.S. Forest Service botanist. Stritch is an expert in pollination ecology. He served as staff to a Pollinator Health Task Force established by President Obama, and in that capacity helped author a National Strategy to Promote the Health of Honey Bees and Other Pollinators.

Prior to the program, from 9-10 a.m., the Potomac Valley Master Naturalists will hold an Open House at the Board of Education building. Anyone interested in learning about Potomac Valley Audubon's Master Naturalist Program is welcome to attend. This Program, which was founded 11 years ago, trains individuals in the fundamentals of natural history and nature interpretation.
