This presentation will explore the fascinating world of our native bees! Our native bees are our best pollinators, yet they have been declining steadily over the last few decades. By better understanding their world we can help reverse this trend. Heather will share the life cycle, habits, and general characteristics of bee species that are native to our area. She will also discuss the amazing mutually beneficial relationship that they have developed with our native plant species over hundreds of years. Once you learn more about the combined role native plants and native bees play in maintaining a healthy ecosystem, you will experience your garden in a whole new way!
