Would you like to learn about research-based gardening techniques that support insect pollinators?  Are you interested in discovering plant species you can incorporate into your gardens that would benefit insect populations?  Perhaps you’re wondering what role YOU can play in protecting local insect populations.  Join us for Brianna Wright “Gardening with Pollinators in Mind.” 

Brianna Wright graduated from the University of Wisconsin in Stevens Point in 2005, with a B.S. in Biology and with minors in Conservation Biology and Resource Management. She traveled to Wyoming and studied invasive species persistence and abundance in the 1988 burned areas of Yellowstone National Park.  Completing her M.S. in Botany at the University of Wyoming in 2007, she was hired by the Botany Department as an educator for the Life Sciences Program in Wyoming, where she served in many capacities over the years, including: lecturer, lab coordinator, freshman advisor, and administrator of the 1000-3000-level biology curriculum. In her current role as Marathon County Horticulture Educator for UW-Madison Extension, she responds to horticulture questions, advises the Master Gardener Volunteers, and has been helping to implement a therapeutic horticulture initiative for the county.
