Islands in Space: Urban Gardens as Sanctuaries for Bees

Most of us have heard about the bee crisis, but what can those of us living in urban spaces do about it?  Learn about the importance of both solitary  bees and bumble bees from a non-honeybee perspective.  The habitats we provide through our gardens and urban biodiversity can have a positive impact as “links” in the fractured urban environment – even what we plant in those gardens can have an impact on the future of bees.  We will also discuss the planning of gardens with regard to phenology, nectar sources, optimal flower types for different bee species, and non-flower materials that are beneficial.  Join urban naturalist, Neil Cunningham, on a stimulating journey into the world of city bees.

Thursday, April 14, 6:30-8:30p.m.
Cost: $7/5 owners.  Please register by calling 507.650.0106.
