Event Description

Dr. Tess Grasswitz, Urban/Small Farm Entomologist with New Mexico State University, will discuss how
since 2010, New Mexico State University and the Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) have been collaborating on testing hundreds of mostly native plant species for their ability to attract and sustain both domesticated honeybees and wild, native bees in different parts of New Mexico. This presentation will include an overview of some of the best "pollinator plants" for the Albuquerque area, as well as an introduction to the fascinating diversity of wild bees endemic to New Mexico.

Dr. Grasswitz is a native of the UK with undergraduate and Master’s degrees from the University of London and a PhD in entomology from the University of California (Riverside). She joined New Mexico State University in October, 2008, as an Urban/Small Farm Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Specialist, with particular interests in biological control and organic growing systems. She is based at the NMSU Agricultural Science Center at Los Lunas, south of Albuquerque.

A short chapter meeting precedes the talk. Native plant books will be on display and available for purchase. This free public program is sponsored by the Albuquerque Chapter, Native Plant Society of New Mexico. More information about the organization is available at www.npsnm.org.
