Last year, Ranger Marjie Lodwick demonstrated how to pet a bee. Bees are amazingly tolerant! #PollinatorWeek is a good time to remember all the benefits we enjoy from bees. But bees are not alone in their role as pollinators.butterflies, ants, beetles, birds, bats and other species are also part of the picture. What's your favorite pollinator?

"I was in my early twenties when I realized that I had the capability of going into the science field. It doesn't happen for everybody when they're four, or 10 or 15. It happened to me when I was 21 years old, injured out of the army and having to rethink my entire life plan."

Check out the awesome video from retired Biologist - Jon Wessman!

Jon Wessman was a Private Lands Biologist in Arkansas for 13 years and has had the great fortune of moving around the country and within the government. This video is a quick insight into his career and it provides some very important advice for all of us. Just when you think the job is about trees, birds and pollinators, you're slapped in the face with the sudden realization of what it is really about.

Video: A sit down interview with Jon Wessman. Some older photos of Jon are interspersed throughout the video.
