There are thought to be over 200,000 species of pollinators in the world and almost all of the research and attention has historically gone to honeybees. In  this talk by Jeff Skevington, you will learn more about the incredible assemblage of other pollinators that visit our crops, gardens and natural habitats. Flies and other non-bees do over one third of our agricultural pollination.

The talk, one in a series  celebrating 150 years of agriculture and presented by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, takes about 45 minutes with a question/answer period following the presentation.

When: 7:00 p.m. on September 14.

Where: the K. W. Neatby Building, Salons A/B, on Carling Avenue.

Free parking is available in the lot beside and spaces around the building.
