How well do you know our fuzziest native pollinators? Come along for this buzzing outing to learn about the life cycle and ecology of bumblebees, try your hand at catching them, and practice identifying the most common species around Vancouver! We’ll get up-close and personal with these large bees and find out how we as individuals can support their populations. 


Accessibility notes:  This program will take place on some uneven surfaces but will primarily be in one area in the Rose Garden and can be done while seated for most of the time. If you have a bee sting allergy, please consider your own safety before registering and let us know if you sign up. If you have any questions or input about accessibility, please email publiced@stanleyparkecology.ca          

This program will meet at the Stanley Park Rose Garden, under the white arches (located on the west side of Pipeline Road, close to the Stanley Park Pavilion). Click here to see the exact location.. (1) (2) (3) (4)

We gratefully acknowledge that the land on which we gather and help steward is the unceded and traditional territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) Nation, and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nation. Since time immemorial, Coast Salish peoples have lived reciprocally with the land, harvesting and cultivating foods and medicines and practicing ceremony. The abundance of these lands and waters, which enables us to live, work, and play here today, is a result of the past and on-going stewardship and advocacy of the Coast Salish peoples.
