Bees are important not only for producing honey and wax and pollinating our crops, they are also important to the health of our environment by pollinating native wild plants. Many of our ideas about bees come from what we know about honey bees, but honey bees are very different from our native wild bees. Join us as we learn about the life cycles of bees, where they live, what plants they need to thrive, and how to protect them from pesticides.
