Xerces Events

Due to the coronavirus, we will not be holding or participating in any in-person events during the pandemic. We will resume in-person events as soon as it is safe and appropriate. In the meantime, we are committed to presenting as many events online as we can, including a new series of Xerces-hosted webinars. (Webinars will be close captioned and recordings added to our YouTube channel.)

 

The list of events on this page will be updated regularly. You can also find updates on social media and via our e-newsletter. If you have questions, please contact Liz Robertson at [email protected]

 

Please note that we are still accepting in-person speaker requests for 2021 events, although this may change depending on public health guidance. In the meantime, we can provide talks through platforms such as Zoom and Google Hangouts.

Join Eric Lee-Mader, Pollinator Program Co-Director, for this virtual short course created in partnership with the Kitsap and Jefferson County Conservation Districts in Washington.  This 90 minute webinar will focus on concepts around protecting and enhancing populations of pollinators, especially bees, in agricultural landscapes.  Introductory topics include the principles of pollinator biology, the economics of insect pollination, basic bee field identification, and evaluating pollinator habitat.  Advanced modules will cover land management practices for pollinator protection, pollinator habitat restoration, incorporating pollinator conservation into federal conservation programs, and financial and technical resources to support these efforts.
