Event Details

Pollen, the miraculous germ cell of plants and the primary protein nutrient for bees, is the fertility key to every flowering plant and tree in the world. In this talk, we discuss how bees transfer pollen during pollination and how it’s digested as a protein source. Illustrated by striking photos, it’s a visual journey that will inform participants in ways that increase the joy of observing pollen on native plants and the hind legs of bees or stored as bee bread in cells.
