Event Description:

Host: Jeremy Hemberger, UW Madison Department of Entomology

Description: UW-Madison graduate student Jeremy Hemberger spends his days examining the behavioral patterns of colonies of bumblebees. How does he do it? He tracks them with small radio tags. Join Jeremy at the Pope Farm Conservancy on June 28th to learn about bumblebees, the plants that sustain them, and how their environment affects them. Together, you’ll explore his active research project, and see how bumblebees are tracked using radio frequency identification. Additionally, Jeremy will discuss the other, closely related wild bee species that share the Conservancy with the humble bumblebee. This tour is free and open to the public. No registration is necessary. We will meet near the lower parking lot on Old Sauk Road. Hope to see you there!
