Skagit Audubon

Watching birds, protecting habitat, connecting with nature


Bring Back the Pollinators
presented by Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation
Tuesday, January 12, 7:00 PM

PollinatorsXerces Society Ambassadors, Katie Hefner and Rebekah Gaxiola, will present this fascinating introduction to native bees, their natural history, and tips on how you can provide what they need in small spaces. The information will focus on the four principles of Xerces Bring Back the Pollinators campaign: grow flowers, provide nest sites, avoid pesticides, and share the word.  

Rebekah hails from Oregon and is currently a PhD student at WSU Vancouver studying insect pollinator community response to disturbance. She grew up down the road from the Portland Audubon Society and spent a lot of time there, which influenced her to become a biologist.

Katie has been a Xerces Volunteer for almost 2 years. She is passionate about both invertebrates and education. She is happy to have opportunities from Xerces to put the two together.
