The Buzz on Local Bees (Online)

March 25 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

WEBINAR

Spring is approaching, and soon the air will be filled with the fragrance of flowers and the busy buzzing of some of our local pollinators – bees!  Bumble on over and join bee buddy and SPES Conservation Technician Olga Lansdorp to learn about these prolific pollinators, including the difference between native bees and honeybees, the diversity of native bees with a focus on mason bees, threats our native bees face, and how you can help them.  She will also discuss nectar nutrition and why pollinators are so important.

 

*Tickets must be purchased in advance. Fees for this program are based on a sliding scale – you choose what you pay!  Your contributions help us bring you more online programs like this one. Ticket sales close 30 minutes before the start of the program.

**This program will take place on Zoom, so please make sure you have Zoom downloaded well in advance of the webinar.  A Zoom link can be found within your confirmation email, and will also be sent out one hour before the start of the program. Only one ticket required per household.

***This is a pilot program, so at this time we won’t be sharing a recording for this program.

 

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.
