Bee gardens involve matching plants that bloom at different times, to bees that emerge at different times. And not all bee species go to all flowers. In this episode we hear about how all these factors come together in Portland gardens.
Hailey Wallace graduated with her masters degree in Environmental Science and Management from Portland State University in 2019. Her thesis, BeeCountPDX focused on determining floral preferences of honey bees and native bees at conservation sites (rain gardens) in Southeast Portland. She is passionate about community science and teaching others about the amazing native bees in our community! She currently transcribes the PolliNation podcast for Oregon State University and is seeking employment related to community science outreach and environmental science.
