Vanden Heuvel said pollinators are responsible for assisting over 80 percent of the world’s flowering plants.

“Without them, humans and wildlife wouldn’t have much to eat or look at,” he said. “Animals that assist plants in their reproduction as pollinators include species of ants, bats, bees, beetles, birds, butterflies, flies, moths, wasps and other unusual animals. Not all are equal nor do any or all pollinate the same plants. The fascination of a few of these will be explored,” he said.

Vanden Heuvel, BG Bees, is an avid beekeeper currently in the Oregon Master Beekeeper Program and members of several beekeeping organizations throughout the State.

This program is free and open to the public. For more information, contact the Hood River County Library District at 541-386-2535, info, or visit their website at
