We are happy to have Dr. Jonathan Lundgren from ECYDSIS - Blue Dasher Farm in South Dakota as our guest speaker. He was a former USDA head scientist for 11 years who was reprimanded for publishing his findings on the adverse effects of neonicotinoids on pollinator and honey bee health. After splitting from the USDA ARS, he started his own research lab/farm called Blue Dasher Farms to continue his research on these and other topics. He has published more than 100 scientific papers while working for the USDA, and now makes speaking to groups across the country part of his mission. Dr. Lundgren was the keynote speaker at the American Bee Federation/American Honey Producers conference earlier this year. He is originally from Lakeville, MN.
