Pollination and climate change will be discussed by Olds College entomologist Dr. Ken Fry this month in Red Deer.

As temperature severity is altered, insects are being affected. This means their pollination services will change along with hot and cold variations. The impacts of this, and what can be done to mitigate this effect in gardens, will be the topic of a Thursday, Oct. 27, talk at the Kerry Wood Nature Centre.

The entomology instructor of the School of Life Sciences and Business at Olds College, has been involved in insect research, teaching and extension for over 30 years. Fry also served as curator for 100,000 specimens in the Olds College Insect Collection and is co-author of Garden Bugs of Alberta.

This speaker-of-the-month event is presented by the Red Deer River Naturalists — but non-members are also welcome to attend. For more information, please visit rdrn.ca/speaker-of-the-month.
