The Cross Timbers Chapter of the Native Plant Society will host a lecture about Texas native bees presented by Michael Warriner at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 12th at the Cherry Park Community Building, 313 Davis St. in Weatherford. The public is welcome.
There are several hundred bee species that are native to Texas, of which the bumblebee is probably the most familiar. Except for the bumblebee, most native bee species are solitary and nest in the ground or in holes in trees. These native bees have resided here long before the European honeybee arrived, and are essential for the survival of native plants and are responsible for a significant amount of pollination in agricultural and ecological systems.
In 2009, Warriner became the resident Invertebrate Biologist in Wildlife Diversity for Texas Parks and Wildlife. For six years prior to that, his interest in bumblebees lead him to conduct field surveys of the bumblebees occurring in Arkansas’s remnant grasslands. Michael curates the website www.texasbumblebees.com, where you can learn how to identify the nine bumblebee species in Texas.
The Cross Timbers Chapter of the NPSOT meets second Thursday of the month (except July and December) at our new location, Cherry Park Community Center, 313 Davis Street (west side of Cherry Park) in Weatherford. The Chapter Business meeting is at 6:30 p.m. followed by a social at 6:45 p.m. with the presentation starting at 7 p.m. The mission is to promote the conservation, research, and utilization of native plants and plant habitats in Texas through education, outreach, and example. For more information, visit http://npsot.org/CrossTimber or call Eileen Porter 817-596-5567. The public is welcome and light refreshments will be served.
