Event description

Description

Learn to identify many of the hundreds of native bee species around us here in the Okanagan. From the lab to
the field, entomologist Bob Lalonde will provide us with ways to identify the different types of pollinating insects.
Bob is a fun and incredibly knowledgeable teacher and you will leave with new insight and skills to help enjoy our
local pollinators, impress your friends and engage in citizen science!

Bob was born in Thunder Bay Ontario, moving away from that idyllic place to pursue graduate studies at Laurentian University in Sudbury and Simon Fraser University in Burnaby. After obtaining his degrees and prior to settling in Kelowna, he worked for a time in Northern California, conducting research into pests of cotton and the reproductive habits of Walnut Husk Flies. Bob has been at the North Kelowna Campus since 1993, where he teaches and conducts research into Insects and Ecology. He is an avid photographer and takes great pleasure in making the native bees of the campus some of his favourite subjects.
