CANCELED: The Secret Life of Native Bees

  • This event has passed.

This class has been canceled. At this time, all assembled group activities at Mt. Cuba Center, including classes and upcoming events, are canceled or postponed until further notice.

Did you know that there are about 250 species of native bees known to occur in Delaware? Unlike the non-native European honeybee, most native bees are solitary ground-nesters and are critically important pollinators of our native wildflowers. Wildlife biologist Matt Sarver discusses the life cycles and specific plant associations of bees documented in research he conducted at Mt. Cuba Center. Learn how you can create habitats to ensure ground-nesting bees continue to flourish in the Piedmont. (Snow Date: Thursday, March 26)
