Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation Lecture Series

The Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation is a nonprofit organization that protects wildlife through the conservation of invertebrates and their habitat. Established in 1971, the Society is at the forefront of invertebrate protection, harnessing the knowledge of scientists and the enthusiasm of citizens to implement conservation programs worldwide. The Colorado State Beekeepers Association, along with Colorado State University and the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, will be hosting the Xerces Society’s Executive Director, Scott Hoffman Black, for a lecture series September 24th through 26th, 2013.

Tuesday, September 24th – Lafayette

Bring Back the Pollinators: Scott Hoffman Black will discuss the importance of insect pollinators, what groups of insects provide pollination services in North America and conservation measures that can be taken to provide habitat for pollinators.  Scott will also discuss how each and every one of us can play an important role in pollinator conservation.

Time: 7pm

Location: Theater in Art Center, Alexander Dawson School, 10455 Dawson Drive, Lafayette, CO 80026

Directions: Please find a map of the Alexander Dawson School here (theater in art center #1 on map). The school is very easy to find and get to for the Boulder and Brighton Beekeeping groups and I expect strong attendance from both.  It also has great parking.
