Native Bees of New England – Their Diversity and Natural History

Presented by Michael Veit, high school biology teacher and native bee enthusiast

How many kinds of bees can you name: honey bees, bumble bees, sweat bees perhaps? Most people are familiar with our non-native honey bees and their role in pollinating commercial crops, but few are aware of the great diversity of native bees that we have in our region and the roles that they play in pollinating our indigenous plants. This program will explore the wild bees of our region, their diversity, beauty, fascinating life histories, and the importance of native bee conservation. 

This program is supported in part by a New Hampshire Humanities Community Project Grant.
