The latest research on bees in the garden: Results from the Oregon State University Garden Ecology Lab

This webinar is part of the 2018 series of Advanced Training Webinars for Master Gardeners sponsored by Oregon State University Extension.

In this behind-the-scenes peek, research entomologist Dr. Gail Langellotto (OSU Department of Horticulture) will share results from the OSU Garden Ecology Lab. Gail will discuss her team’s latest findings in garden bee research including the species of bees that visit home gardens, attractiveness of different genera of native plants, and practical tips for building gardens for bees.

Presenter:  An entomologist by training, Dr. Gail Langellotto coordinates the statewide Oregon Master Gardener program. Her research and extension interests are focused on developing a better understanding of how to design and manage gardens and parks within urban/suburban landscapes to maximize ecosystem services such as pollination, pest control and human health and well-being.
