Spring in the City: One Bee, Two Bee, Red Bee, Blue Bee!
Once upon a springtime, apples were flowers and bees helped turn them into the sweet fruits that you love to pick and eat. But which bees? There are over 200 species in New England and they’re wonderfully diverse in size, color, and behavior. In this talk, Nick Dorian, a second-year PhD student at Tufts, will teach you all about our native bees, with a focus on the spring-emerging bees you’ll be able to find in Cambridge. You’ll learn about basic bee biology, why our native bees are such efficient pollinators, and how you can provide flowers and shelter to make a difference in the life of a bee.

Offered by: Friends of Fresh Pond Reservation and the Cambridge Water Department
