Chapter Meeting: Bees and Pollinators Through the Macro Lens (in person)

January 17, 2024, 7:00PM at the RE Store, 2309 Meridian St

CHAPTER MEETING POSTPONED! Due to heavy snowfall, challenging travel conditions, and concern for our members’ safety, The Koma Kulshan Board has postponed this in-person Chapter Meeting. Aidan Hersh’s presentation “Bees and Pollinators Through the Macro Lens” will be rescheduled during our Spring 2024 Chapter Meetings – please stay tuned for the date! Thank you for your understanding!

Many people are unaware of the fascinating diversity of bees and other pollinators around the world. For example, in the state of Washington alone there are upwards of 700 species of native bees. To the naked eve, many of these organisms look like nothing more than a mundane house fly. Through the macro lens, however, a vastly different world is revealed. In this presentation, Aidan Hersh will showcase the beautiful bees and pollinators of Washington and beyond. Aidan Hersh is a macro photographer and native bee enthusiast living in Bellingham. He serves on the board of the Washington Native Bee Society and the steering committee of the Washington Bee Atlas. He hopes that his photography will spark interest in the too often forgolten vet vitally important world of bees and pollinators. His photos can be found on Instagram
