Native Bees: Why They Matter and How to Support Them
June 22, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
We all know about the European honeybee, but what about the native bees that live here in Loudoun? These native bees help pollinate your ornamental and edible plants. At this Loudoun Wildlife Conservancy sponsored event, you’ll learn about the many fascinating and bee-utiful native bees that live in our gardens and the plants that support them. You will get a close-up look at Mason and Leafcutter Bees, discuss some simple ways that you can attract native bees in your garden, and help them thrive. You will learn some best practices for using bee houses and how to keep future generations of bees healthy. Join us and leave this talk with various handouts, including a list of native plants to plant and a garden design plan. Registration required.
