Thanks to all of you who asked!
I graduated last Friday (June 11) with a Masters in Environmental Studies from The Evergreen State College. All my papers (except two in aquatic biology) were about bees, either wild or managed. In addition, my candidacy paper was titled “Native Pollinators and the Food Supply: Can Wild Bees Bridge the Gap Left by Apis mellifera?” and my thesis was “The Effects of Pesticide-Contaminated Pollen on Larval Development of the Honey Bee, Apis mellifera.”
Now it’s on to bigger things. However, I will continue to blog, keep bees, and work on pesticide-related issues. The entities responsible for the pesticide mess in this world better brace themselves because I’m just getting warmed up.
Thanks again for all your kind comments,
