March Chapter Meeting
Public Welcome Free Event Chapter Meeting Program/Speaker Presentation
Richard Hitt will give a presentation on Wasps: An Under-appreciated Pollinator
After a brief discussion of the very close evolutionary relationship among wasps, bees, and ants, the presentation will cover the difficulties that can arise in trying to understand wasps as a group. He will share his experience in using technology and citizen science projects to allow amateurs, like Richard, to make decent identifications, usually up to genus and often to species, of these fascinating creatures and show up in our native gardens.
Richard is the founding president of our chapter. He was certified in 2013 as a Tennessee Naturalist -- a program that he says, "Changed my life."
