Learn all about Vermont’s Wild Bees at DLT’s Annual Meeting, with Spencer Hardy

The Duxbury Land Trust is holding its annual meeting on Thursday, April 20, 6:30 p.m. at Crossett Brook Middle School, VT Route 100 in the library. A special presentation on Vermont’s Wild Bees will follow a brief business meeting.

Spencer Hardy, Biologist with the Vermont Center for Ecostudies, will present. A Vermont native, Spencer has long been hooked on birds and nature. One of his first jobs out of highschool was as a technician on the Vermont Bumblebee Atlas – Spencer’s first introduction to the world of insects. During undergraduate studies, he worked on projects ranging from bumblebees in the Sierra Nevada, CA to freshwater fish in Lewis Creek, VT. In 2016 Spencer graduated from Middlebury College with a degree in Biology and an obsession with Vermont’s natural history. After a few years alternating between mist-netting and farming, Spencer was hired as the project coordinator for the Vermont Wild Bee Atlas, launched in 2019. While fascinated by the minutia of bee identification, Spencer tries not to spend all his time with a microscope, and as a result, his car is rarely without a insect net, fly rod, or backcountry skis.

All are invited. You do not need to be a Duxbury Land Trust member.
