While honeybees are arguably the most well-know bee species, there are many species of bees native to Ontario that play an important role in our ecosystem. Join Susan Blayney on Tuesday August 28th from 2pm-3pm to learn all about native bees, their needs and challenges and what you can do to help support them. Cost is $10 per person.
Please bring along an empty, clean tin can or a coffee mug if you’d like to make a mason bee house at the end of the workshop!
