Erin & Brian Melloy have been working tirelessly to remove invasive species in their woodlands in hopes of attracting the Rusty Patched Bumblebee, a species of concern in Iowa. In the fall of 2020 all their hard work paid off when they identified a Rusty Patched Bumblebee on their property.


Join us for an evening of fun and fellowship with Erin and Brian as we make the connection between quality habitat and pollinators with a focus on invasive species removal. We will learn about the biology, life cycle, and habitat associations of bumble bees, the current status of and best management practices for Rusty Patched Bumblebee, as well as identifying and managing invasive species.
