Gardening for Native Bees 
Tuesday, March 21, 2023 07:00pm

THIS TALK IS IN-PERSON. IT WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE ONLINE. Sunnyvale Library Program Room, 665 West Olive Ave., Sunnyvale

We all know about the European honey bee, but what about the native bees that live here in the Santa Clara Valley? These local insects help pollinate our ornamental and edible plants too! Once you know what to look for, you’ll see over a dozen bee species that live in our urban setting – especially among locally-growing native plants. Find out how planting even a few select natives can enrich your garden and attract even more native (and honey) bees.

John Kehoe is a longtime member of CNPS, iNaturalist and The Xerces Society. He is a regular volunteer at assorted Grassroots Ecology events as well as at various CNPS functions. His research interests include studying biodiversity, especially native bee ecology. He shares these interests by way of his photography on iNaturalist and Flickr. 

The talk is free and registration is not required.
