Online

6:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.

Atlantic Canada is home to more than 250 different species of wild bees, ranging in colour, shape and size. Unlike European honeybees that live in hives, wild bees make important decisions on where to establish their nests each year. The quality of the habitat surrounding their nest influences the overall fitness of the hive.

During this webinar, we will discuss the biology of wild bees, what types of resources they need to thrive and how we can help promote bee biodiversity.

Join us to learn more about the bees, their habitat and how we can help them.
