Wild Bees in Our Garden
Dec 4, 2019
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Bees are a diverse and fascinating group of insects, with approximately 20,000 species worldwide and 4,000 species in North America. They are very important pollinators for both crop and wild plants. In this program at Bok Tower Gardens in Lake Wales, FL, Dr. Rachel Mallinger will describe the diversity, biology, and behavior of native wild bees in Florida, their contributions to plant pollination, threats to their populations, and ways that we can work together to conserve them.
The program will feature foods and drinks that depend on bees, and an optional garden walk identifying bees and other pollinators.
