Topic: Wild Bees in Your Garden


Scott, who wowed 2017 OHA Convention attendees, will introduce us to some of the many types of wild bees that are native to southern Ontario.  He will explain why these “other pollinators” are important to our garden ecosystems  and  show us how to recognize, support and sustain these bees through our gardening practices.
Scott MacIvor works in research at the University of Toronto, in applied ecology and conservation. He focuses on pollination systems, biodiversity, green infrastructure and ecosystem services; and is well-known for his research on native bees.

Photo Contest Judging this Evening
Tonight, you will be invited to judge the photos submitted for this year's photo contest. Please arrive early (doors open at 7 pm tonight) to review the photos and cast your ballots.  

Contestants' photos will be displayed on eight poster boards, and society members will be provided with eight voting slips - one vote per display board. As judges, each of us will be tasked with selecting our favourite photo on each display board, writing the number of the photograph on a voting slip, and dropping it in the voting box on the table in front of each display board. Members of the Photo Contest Committee will be available to answer questions and support the process.

For an advance look at the photo entries, click here to see the digital images.



Attendance at this general meeting is free to members, $5 for non-members.
Members, please remember to wear your 2018 name badges!
