Insect pollinators

P.J. Liesch will discuss insect pollinators at the Baraboo Public Library on Thursday.

Insect expert to discuss pollinators in peril at Baraboo library

The director of the University of Wisconsin- Madison Insect Diagnostic Lab and Extension Entomologist P.J. Liesch will introduce attendees to the bees and other pollinators of Wisconsin at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at the Baraboo Public Library, 230 Fourth Ave..

He also will discuss the risks these insects face and what we can do to help encourage our imperiled pollinators at this free event.

Liesch earned his master’s degree in entomology at UW-Madison. In the lab, he identifies insects, spiders and other arthropods, and insect-damaged material for UW-Extension offices and the general public from across Wisconsin. In addition to teaching with the UW-Madison Department of Entomology, Liesch conducts outreach presentations about insects around the state and is a regular guest on Wisconsin Public Radio’s Larry Meiller Show.

Registration is not necessary. The program is co-sponsored by the library and the Sauk County Master Gardener Association.
