You’ve probably heard, “Save The Bees!” — but do you know which bees need saving? More than 4,000 species of bees inhabit North America, and most don’t live in hives or make honey. These wild bees come in every size, shape, and color you can imagine, and they live all around us, hiding in plain sight.

In this lecture, PhD student and bee expert Nick Dorian will introduce you to the wild bees of New England. Together, we’ll examine their varied lifestyles, habitat needs, and the intricate relationships they have with flowering plants and other insects. You’ll come away charmed by these tiny pollinators and with clear action items for how to support them in your own backyard. The talk will last approximately 60 minutes, with an additional 15 minutes for questions.

NOTE NEW TIME! 6 to 7:15 p.m. via Zoom. Closed captioning will be available. To get the login details, please register here.
