Oxbow to host pollinator field day

pollinator workshop

Oxbow is pleased to be collaborating with Washington State University and the NW Pollinator Initiative are proud to collaborate in presenting a field course about pollinators and farming at Oxbow on Friday, September 16 from 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

The field class is for farmers, serious gardeners and anyone interested in insect pollinators, particularly wild bees. You will learn how to identify bees in the field, under a microscope, and how to integrating them into an organic farm system.

The four-hour program will feature a short lecture by Elias Bloom and Rachel Olsson from Washington State University’s Crowder Lab, followed by guided pollinator observation tours and station-based basic native bee and pollinator identification training at the farm. Takeaway materials will feature a booklet of resources for locally specific pollinator guides and monitoring techniques.
