April 9: Pollinators, sustainable agriculture presented

beePULLMAN, Wash. – “A bee’s eye perspective on sustainable agriculture” will be presented by the co-director of the Berkeley Food Institute in a free, public lecture at 6 p.m. Thursday, April 9, in CUE 203 at Washington State University. A reception will begin at 5 p.m. in CUE 518.

The talk by Claire Kremen is the annual E. Paul Catts Public Lecture in entomology (http://entomology.wsu.edu/events/e-paul-catts/) at WSU.

Kremen, an authority on pollinators and particularly bees, will discuss how conservation of “pollinator-friendly” habitat across landscapes can mitigate ecological harm and contribute to sustainable farming and global food security.

Kremen is professor in environmental science, policy and management at the University of California, Berkeley, and director of the food institute’s Center for Diversified Farming Systems.

The lecture honors Paul Catts who was revered as an excellent teacher, public speaker and artist. The lectureship was endowed in 2001; major contributors included Ann B. Catts, Elizabeth Beers, Frank Peryea and John and Ruth Brown.
