Hi. I’m Brittany, a member of the Atlas Obscura community. I am an entomologist specializing in pollinators. I love teaching curious people about the incredible world of beekeeping, wild native bees, the endangered rusty-patched bumble bee, monarch butterflies, and more. I enjoy speaking to people who are interested in pollinator conservation, helping wild pollinators, or starting their own bee hives. Connecting people to nature in the city is what it is all about!
