Biodiversity Bonanza! With Dr. Alana Pindar

Join us for a virtual thirty-minute Ask-A-Scientist session to celebrate Science Literacy Week! For our first of three sessions, Dr. Alana Pindar will discuss her research on bees and their role in our ecosystems and she will take audience questions as well, so make sure to come prepared!

Alana is a bee scientist at the University of Guelph where she has been investigating the impacts of global change on wild bees: specifically, how stressors interact and which play the most significant roles in affecting wild bee populations. Throughout her career, she has developed a passion for pioneering the importance of conserving and maintaining biodiversity of pollinators in changing landscapes. She recently led a comprehensive review to identify, prioritize and assess evidence to produce a report on the Status and Trends for Pollinator Health in Ontario for the Ontario Ministry of Agricultural and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA).

This event is open to youth aged 11-18, parents, and teachers!
