This presentation is a fascinating journey showcasing the development of different flower types and the presentation of floral resources to pollinators. Exploring the types of insect pollinators, their foraging behavior, and the floral features that attract pollinators, Heather will provide many specific examples of how native plants are pollinated and what pollinator is most effective and why.
About Heather Holm
I am a biologist, pollinator conservationist, and award-winning author. In addition to assisting with native bee research projects, I inform and educate audiences nationwide, through my books and many presentations, about the fascinating world of native pollinators and beneficial insects, and the native plant communities that support them. Much of my spare time is spent planning and executing ecological restoration projects, serving on the boards of nonprofits to promote conservation work, and spending a significant amount of time in the field to better understand the natural history and habitat of native bees and wasps, and the complexities of enhancing pollinator habitat using ecological restoration best management practices.
