With one of the most diverse bee faunas in the US, Colorado has a long history of research on wild bee ecology, evolution, and diversity. Dr. Carper will review some of the history of Colorado bee research, and summarize the CU Museum’s research efforts to understand how humans impact wild bees, and how ecology can help inform wild bee conservation. Admission is free. Doors open at 6:30 PM. Seating is limited.
