Native Bees with Sam Droege

June 23 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Bees are tiny, one bush or one clump of perennials is often all it takes to foster native bees in your yard. Within a mile of your yard (urban or rural) there are at least over 100 species of bees looking for the right plants. Decline of honeybees is well documented, but trends in local native bee species remain uncertain. What do we know about native bees?
Learn from Sam Droege, wildlife biologist with the USGS Patuxent Wildlife Research Center, who has spent years studying and tracking native bees.
