“Bug specialist" Jeff Price will describe the vital role his desert friends play in a presentation April 13 to the Botany Society in Borrego Springs.

Price, with 10 years’ experience as a California State Park interpreter, will talk about “The Beetles and The Bees: A look into the hidden lives of those who pollinate, protect and pilfer from our desert plants.”  Price will explore the often over-looked lives of our native desert pollinators and their fascinating life cycles.

Jeff's presentation will begin at 10 AM in the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park’s Visitor Center, 200 Palm Canyon Drive, 92004. There is no charge for admission, and the public is invited.

Price has worked at Seacliff State Beach in Aptos, Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park at Scotts Valley and is now employed at Ocotillo Wells SVRA. He has had an interest in the lives of the small and curious since childhood.
