Common Native Bees(7-9 PM)
Event Sponsor: Blue Ridge Chapter
The Blue Ridge Chapter invites you to attend the November 8th meeting in Boone. Our program this month will be “Common Native Bees” presented by Nancy Adamson. Join us to learn about common native bees we can support by protecting and planting pollinator habitat. In North Carolina, we have about 500 native species and a few introduced species in addition to the European honey bee. Bumble bees, mason bees, mining or digger bees, sunflower bees, carpenter bees, hibiscus bees, and leafcutter bees are all groups you can easily recognize when you slow down and take a look. Nancy’s program will highlight nesting habits to help you in supporting these diverse native pollinators. You can view some of her video and photo montages highlighting native plants and their inhabitants at https://www.youtube.com/user/MelittologyNancy.
