Randall Paul Cass will speak about how helping bees thrive can help farmers thrive as well in his upcoming Iowa State University Extension and Outreach webinar. 

Iowa Learning Farms will host a webinar on Wednesday, Oct. 16th, at 12:00 pm about the research being done at Iowa State University on bees in agricultural settings.

There are between 300 and 400 species of bees in the state of Iowa, according to Randall Paul Cass, extension entomologist at Iowa State University. Cass will present Iowa State research which focuses on observing the challenges and opportunities for bees in Iowa’s agricultural landscapes.

“We thrive when bees thrive,” said Cass, whose research focuses on honeybees and native bees, and on exploring how Iowa’s landscapes impact bee health and abundance. Join the webinar at noon October 16th to learn more about Iowa’s native bees and the research being done at Iowa State University on the relationship between bees and agriculture.
