Jeff Boone works for the City's Parks Division. Trained as entomologist, Jeff is very interested in insects, especially those that interact with his second favourite subject, trees. He has studied insects in Panama, Ecuador, Bangladesh and many parts of Canada. Building on this, he recently took up beekeeping and is learning quickly that knowing about insects and caring for them are very different.
Jeff will discuss some of the new challenges in our urban forest. Two topics will be the recent case of Dutch elm disease in the Queen Elizabeth neighbourhood and the little understood cottony ash psyllid. Although the focus will be on insects that affect the health of trees, there will be plenty of opportunity to discuss other insects in Saskatoon.
Avoid a parking ticket while attending the SNS monthly meetings - consider these parking options on campus:
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Construction on the U. of Sask. campus - reduced pedestrian access to the Biology building
As a result of construction of the new Collaborative Science Research Building (CSRB) on the north side of the Biology Building the North entrance and walkway, opposite the Agriculture Parkade, and the pedestrian walkway from the Parkade to Biology are closed and will not reopen until April 2018. Traffic on the north side of the Biology Building has been rerouted. There is still access to the Agriculture Parkade, but from there you will need to access the Biology Building via Physics.
For the general meetings you might park east of the Physics Building. If you park in the Agriculture Parkade you will need to walk outside from Agriculture past Kirk Hall and past the John Mitchell building to the SE entrance to Physics and then through Physics to Geology to Biology buildings after descending one flight of stairs. See path shown by purple stars on the map.
Please contact any member of the SNS Board if you have questions or concerns about access to the Biology Building.
