David Jennings

President  |  Olympia

David is someone who gets excited at all the biodiversity around us. He is an academically trained wildlife conservationist concerned about the decline of our native pollinators. David started learning field ID of bumble bees via Xerces’ Bumble Bee Watch. Now that he has tracked down all the species of bumbles in Washington (except B suckleyi) he is learning how to find and identify all the other 600+ species of Washington’s native bees.

I have a pollinator garden that is stunning and adjacent to an arid hillside filled with countless native wildflowers.

I had the most amazing bee garden on earth...until I moved and now I have to start again.

I plant way too much stuff and by mid-summer there's almost no time to take care of it.
