Owen Cass

“Owen Cass is a Master of Science candidate in Entomology with the University of Delaware, and Mt. Cuba Center Fellow. He is a hobby beekeeper and gardener who is interested in the impact that planting decisions have on pollinators. His research will focus on elucidating the ecological benefit that species and cultivars in Mt. Cuba’s trial garden provide to native pollinators. He will also be tracking the various pollen sources used by honey bees and bumblebees. He hopes that his work will allow gardeners, agriculturalists, and horticulturalists to make well-informed planting decisions to benefit¬†imperiled pollinators.”
