The Fascinating World of the Native Bee / FREE
January 25, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
The news has been abuzz about honey bees, but how well do you know the over 400 species of
native bees that call Maryland their home? This presentation, with Natalia Zacharin, will cover an introduction to the native
bees we will find in our very own backyards, what amazing traits they have, the incredible co-
evolutionary relationship between native bees and native wildflowers, and why their very existence is
In an era of over-information and incorrect information, learn which plants are truly "for the bees", and
why it is important to plant gardens for our native bees that help the honey bees, and not the other way
around. We will also explore which plants make the biggest impact, particularly in the transitional
periods of early spring and late autumn.
It's the start of the New Year and a New Decade. Each of us can make a significant difference this
decade to help native bees, honey bees and all pollinators thrive.
