February, 2017 Meeting
Our third Fall/Winter/Spring lecture will be given on Monday, February 13, at 7 p.m. at the Eugene Garden Club, 1645 High Street, Eugene. Our speaker will be Jon Perry, Artist & Founder of Stated Clearly. His talk, To the Point, will address the honey bees's highly complex stinger with its multiple moving parts and a venom gland loaded with pain causing enzymes. How did such a complex structure evolve? Join us as we look at clues in comparative anatomy, illustrated with slides and videos, to piece together the surprising history of the stinger's evolution.
