Biology Talks – Pesticides and Pollinators

Join Biologist Ray Martin and Ecologist Juliette Arsenault as they share their knowledge and ecological approach to pest management. Admission is by donation to the local food bank.

Did you know that many of the seeds we buy are treated with chemicals harmful to bees? Even seeds designed for pollinators are harmful to bees if they are treated! Ray is an avid beekeeper with an in-depth understanding of pesticides and their impacts on animals, plants and landscapes. He will review the current state of bees in Ontario and let you know what you can do to help – vital information to keep that sweet supply of fresh honey!
