Gardening to Attract Native Bees.
Nick Dorian, a first-year Ph.D. student in the Crone Lab at Tufts University, is an ecologist interested in bee biology and conservation; plant-pollinator interactions; and modeling the population dynamics and movement of insects. He will give a presentation on attracting native bees to your garden. Nick also has a passion for gardening and has planted pollinator gardens in Somerville and Medford in part to support urban bees and to raise awareness about their importance. The Somerville Garden Club is aware of the importance of attracting bees and maintains a pollinator garden along the bike path at Highland Road.
