Join Tom Sullivan at Cathy and Michael Katz’s Farm in the historic landscape of The Great Meadow of Hadley. Tom will draw our attention to the bees visiting the farm’s flowers, ID them to their bee family, and talk about the bees’ nesting styles. We will be able to collect a few seeds from plants no longer in bloom. Bring your own containers — plastic bags, lidded containers and small paper bags are all useful. You may want to bring snips or scissors to cut seeded stems.
In the event of rain, we will head inside a tent where Tom will give a slideshow of farm flowers grown from collected seeds, bee behaviors, flight ranges, and possible nesting locations. Handouts will be provided.
