February 2011 Meeting

by MaryAnnLittle ~ February 23, 2011

Our February 2011 Meeting included Speaker, Kathy Olson, The Bee Lady, mask designs and a brief presentation on invasive species, by Charlie Boos.

Kathy’s enjoyable presentation, “Making Peace with Bees”, taught us all about the lives of bees.  Thank you Kathy!

Charlie Boos, from Mystic Natives Consulting Services, was our Conservation committee guest.  He is a certified arborist, but today spoke briefly about invasive plants and their adverse impact on our bird and insect population.  (Insects do not eat invasive plants such as bittersweet.  If insects don’t have food, the baby birds don’t have insect protein to eat, therefore, less birds).
