In the fifth CreekSpeak talk of 2013, pollination ecologist Katharina Ullman will provide an overview of native bee diversity in Yolo County, talk about threats to native bees in the region and explore efforts to enhance habitat for pollinators.

Ullman will talk about “The Bees Around Us” at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 19, in the Club Room at the Veterans’ Memorial Center, 203 E. 14th St. in Davis.

She will highlight the importance of native bees for agricultural production, and the efforts of local organizations, landowners and researchers to identify and enhance plant communities that support pollinator populations in the context of global change.

A doctoral student in the Williams lab in the UCD entomology department, her research focuses on pollinator habitat restoration and understanding how pollinator species are able to persist in highly modified landscapes, including agricultural lands.

CreekSpeak is Putah Creek Council’s six-month series of community talks about the nature, culture and history of our region. Talks are free to Putah Creek Council members and are open to the public. A $5 donation is requested from those who have not yet joined the council.

The final CreekSpeak talk of 2013 will be “Birds of Putah Creek” by Marilyn Ramenofsky on Oct. 17.
