The High Desert Museum invites you to the first event in a series of three programs about pollinators and their role in our communities. Join Rich Hatfield, senior endangered species conservation biologist for the Xerces Society, and LeeAnn Kriegh, author of The Nature of Bend, in a discussion about the importance of native bee species. Afterwards, see a twenty-minute documentary, A Ghost in the Making: Searching for the Rusty-patched Bumble Bee, about the first bee in the continental U.S. to be listed under the Endangered Species Act.
