Organizer: Native Bee Society of BC & Wild Bird Trust of BC
Maplewood Flats in North Vancouver has a wonderful history of connecting the public with local birds on their site. We want to do the same, only with native bees. Furthermore, the Coast Salish Native Plant Nursery is a fabulous place to pick up plants for your own bee garden.
Join Madame Beespeaker & Senaqwila Wyss to learn how birds and bees use the same habitat but in different ways. We’ll be playing Bird and Bee BINGO and spotting and identifying bees using special Beespeaker Bee Gazing Frames that have photographs of different local bees.
We’ll teach folks how to photograph bees and contribute to community science by adding their observations to the iNaturalist Bee Tracker Project.
