I’m looking forward to several upcoming events and talks in October. Although I miss being able to meet everyone in person, the virtual aspect of the meetings eliminates travel constraints and lets me talk with groups that I probably wouldn’t be able to otherwise. If your organization would like to discuss having me present at one of your upcoming virtual meetings, please contact me. I still have a few openings for the end of the year and am starting to schedule events and talks for next year.
- Oct. 13, 2020: I will be giving a virtual presentation at the regular monthly meeting of the Oak Openings Chapter of the Wild Ones. We will discuss the differences between native plants, exotic plants, aggressive plants, and invasive plants and why it is important to understand the differences between the different terms.
- Oct. 21, 2020: I will be giving a virtual presentation for the D.C. Beekeepers regular monthly meeting. The topic will be fall choices for pollinator habitat. We will talk about what to add, what to leave behind, and how to manage for all the bees and the environment we share.
- Oct. 24-25, 2020: I will be one of the guest speakers for the Becoming 21st Century Leaders: Women in Beekeeping & Agriculture conference. This conference is being held by LEAD for Pollinators and will be completely online due to local, state, and national health concerns. The goal of this conference is to bring together a hive of experienced, diverse, purposeful individuals to expand the opportunities for women (and men) as keepers of the ecosystem to support the health and sustainability of honey bees, native pollinators, and beekeeping. The conference will include 32 topics in leadership, business, and safety. I will be doing a presentation on sharing your knowledge through writing as well as being a panelist in the Action in Leadership, Business, and Safety for Women in Beekeeping and Agriculture discussion. Registration is required and is currently open.
