Join us for this talk with guest speaker Charity Briere as part of the programming offered for the exhibit, In Adoration of the Precarious Bee.

Charity Briere of the Red Deer Beekeepers Association is converting her back yard into a bee habitat! In this presentation Charity will briefly outline current scientific knowledge of bees in Alberta, as well as share examples and learned experiences from within her own urban space in the heart of our own Red Deer.

About Charity Briere

Charity is a friend to all bugs. The fascinating details of insect biology never cease to delight her, long after completing a BSc in the 1990s. In 2017, she decided to begin a Masters of Science to expand her opportunities as an instructor at Red Deer College (now Red Deer Polytechnic -RDP). In addition to science education & outreach through RDP, Charity is also a Board member of the Red Deer Beekeeper Association, the Alberta Native Bee Council and the Red Deer River Naturalists Society. These roles enable her to continue expanding her understanding of the importance of insect conservation -particularly that of pollinators- and share her exploration of bee biology with the Central Alberta community. For the past several years, she has been working on transforming her yard in Red Deer into a Pollinator Paradise.
