The private lives of our native bees: talk and walk
Saturday, Aug. 26, 1-3 pm
Meet: Social Sciences bldg, room 14005, Ottawa U
What is (and isn't) a bee? What is pollination? How diverse are wild bees, and how do they live their lives? Which wild bees have we observed on campus? Are bees struggling? What can we do to help them? We will explore these questions, and others, in this interactive session offered by the Wild Pollinator Partners Action Group, then head out into campus green space to observe wild bees in action.
