Discover the natural diversity around you and learn to recognize and support native bees from the comfort of your home. Did you know that bees come in blue, green, orange, black, red, and yellow? Each native bee species has its own unique lifestyle and habits.
During this virtual workshop, participants will learn how to identify and report the endangered rusty patched bumble bee and get tips to help conserve native pollinators in the Chicagoland area.
Brittany Buckles is the Education Director for Bike a Bee. She is an entomologist specializing in Chicagoland pollinators.
Bike A Bee is a grassroots project based mostly around the south side of Chicago. Jana Kinsman and crew travel primarily on bicycles for their 50 hive inspections throughout the beekeeping season.
