Troy University co-sponsoring bee workshop in Dothan

Posted: Tuesday, 15 March 2016

DOTHAN - In celebration of the start of spring, Troy University's Dothan Campus along with Alabama Master Gardeners and the Alabama Cooperative Extension System will present a bee workshop on Saturday, March 19 at Sony Hall in the Everett Building from 10 a.m. until noon.

The workshop, titled Supporting Native Pollinators, will teach participants how to identify native bees and attract them to their yards, and allow them to tour the soon-to-be pollinator habitat at TROY's Dothan Campus.

This workshop will explain how important pollinators are to the environment.

Eighty percent of all world plants can only reproduce with the help of a pollinator (such as bees, birds, bats and more). Workshop participants will learn ways to protect the pollinators.

This workshop will feature Urban Regional Extension Agent Phillip Carter. This workshop is free and open to the public, and light refreshments will be served.
