The Pacific Northwest is one of the best places to be a naturalist. Every major biome within a short distance, we are lucky to live in a place that promises a variety of outdoor adventures. We can’t always load the camping gear into our family Subarus, but we can still appreciate nature every day in our very own backyards and local areas.
The varied plant life of our urban landscapes provides habitat for many small and fascinating creatures, just waiting for your discovery! Join Hoyt Arboretum and Bee & Bloom experts to learn all about the road to becoming an amateur melittologist.
This course will cover:
-Common bee species of the PNW
-Different nesting and social behaviors of bee species
-Floral preferences of local bee species
-General taxonomy and morphological differences between groups of local bee species
-How ecologists and scientists monitor bee populations
-Current citizen science and conservation initiatives for bee-lovers
All lectures will be recorded and available to participants for 48hrs following the class.
