Tammy Horn presents "Native Flowers, Shrubs and Trees Attractive to Honey Bees"

Founders Lecture Series presents 

Tammy Horn, award-winning author of Bees in America: How the Honey Bee Shaped a Nation and the recently published, Beeconomy: What Women and Bees Can Teach Us about Local Trade and the Global Market is well-known for her work with bees and plants in Appalachian regions. Dr. Horn, born in Harlan County, Kentucky is a graduate of Berea College and continued her schooling with a M.A. degree from Fort Hays State and a Ph.D. degree from the University of Alabama. After teaching for three years at the University of West Alabama, she returned to Kentucky to help her grandfather with his bees and to teach at Eastern Kentucky University and Berea College. Her primary research and outreach activity involves collaboration with coal companies to reclaim surface mine sites with pollinator for- age and habitat. The goal is to create a three-season bloom, in which diverse and Appalachian native flowers and/or trees are blooming spring, summer and fall. For the Arboretum Founders Lecture she will be talking about native plants attractive to honey bees.
