The Coast Fork Willamette Watershed Council welcomes Wes Messinger, US Army Corps of Engineers’ Willamette Valley Project Botanist, for this month's Science Pub! In this presentation, Mr. Messinger will explain some of the diversity we stand to lose with a focus on native Oregon bees. How many kinds are there? How do they live their lives? A biologist by inclination, upbringing and training, Mr. Messinger earned his B.S. and M.S. from Oregon State University, where he concentrated on plant ecology and evolution. He's studied and managed native habitats, rare plants and rare butterflies in Oregon for some decades. The CFWWC hosts a free monthly public meeting series called the Coast Fork Science Pub on the fourth Tuesday of each month. The event begins with informal socializing, trivia, prizes and updates about the watershed. The the Science Pub presentation begins at 6 p.m. and 10% of the evening sales will benefit the Watershed Council. All ages are welcome!
