THIS TALK IS IN-PERSON. IT WILL NOT BE AVAILABLE ONLINE. Sunnyvale Library Program Room, 665 West Olive Ave., Sunnyvale
We all know about the European honey bee, but what about the native bees that live here in the Santa Clara Valley? These local insects help pollinate our ornamental and edible plants too! Once you know what to look for, you’ll see over a dozen bee species that live in our urban setting – especially among locally-growing native plants. Find out how planting even a few select natives can enrich your garden and attract even more native (and honey) bees.
