Did you know that there are more than 500 different species of bee that call the state of Oregon home? Ranging from big, fuzzy bumble bees to tiny, solitary carpenter bees, they all play a significant role in pollinating our native plants and trees.
This Bees and Trees walk will highlight important plant and pollinator relationships in the PNW. We’ll start with a quick introductory session on bees and bee diversity, observe collected specimens, and then hit the trails to get a closer look at the bees that call the Arboretum home. We’ll practice catch and release with insect nets and magnifying viewers out on the trails.
Class size is limited and pre-registration is required.
