August Chapter Meeting
Saturday, August 11th, 2018
The Xerces Society is an international nonprofit organization that protects wildlife through the conservation of invertebrates and their habitat.
We will have the pleasure of learning from Cameron Newell. Cameron is a Pollinator Conservation Specialist and Bee Better Certified Coordinator from Xerces Society's Southwest Regional Office in San Diego. Cameron will give us an overview of the Xerces Society and the work they do, discuss the current state of pollinator and other invertebrate population health, and talk about some of the current initiatives they are implementing and how those relate to the fruit growing and agriculture industries.
