Parking lot across from Tufts Sports and Fitness Center - 161 College Ave, Medford, MA


Rachael Bonoan, Kelsey Graham and Natalie Kerr are Tufts graduate students researching bees in the Boston area! They (and we) are excited to take us on a tour of their apiaries and introduce us to the research they are conducting, including investigations on honey bee nutrition and brood development, bumble bee population dynamics and how an invasive bee (the wool carder bee) affects foraging behavior of a native bumble bee.We will meet at 5:30pm on Tuesday August 12th in the parking lot across from Tufts Sports and Fitness Center (161 College Ave in Medford) which is very near where Rachael and Kelsey have hives and do all of their field work. 

If people are late, we will be easy to find, but if you arrive after 6:00pm you may miss some bee action because, depending on the weather, foraging tends to die down between 6:00pm and 7:00pm.
Call or text me (Sadie @ 978.771.8570) if you need to get in touch last-minute.
We also hope to resume (bi?)monthly meetings in September so stay tuned. If you have a good space for meeting once or repeatedly in the future please be in touch. Please also mark you calendars & stay tuned for upcoming announcements about a Hive Dive (Aug. 24th at 1pm) & a Winterization Prep Panel (Sept. 18th evening) to be hosted by us at Boston Nature Center.

Meanwhile, I hope to see some of you at Tufts next Tuesday!
