City of Ottawa Wildlife Speaker Series
Speakers: Jessica Forrest and Jeff Skevington

Join us at this first-of-the-season Wildlife Speaker event. We’ll be giving away free native plant seeds and showing you how to make a simple “house” for Mason Bees, the bees that pollinate our fruit trees!

Jessica and Jeff are both members and strong supporters of our WPP network – and entertaining speakers. Jessica carries out research on native bees at Ottawa U: see Forrest Lab. Jeff is a scientist at Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and has just co-authored a book on Flower Flies, an often overlooked but important class of pollinator: see professional profile.
