Meet Your Native Bees
05/21/23 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm Peter Helfrich
Honey bees are incredibly important to our agricultural system – we couldn’t enjoy many of our favorite foods without them! But like many of us, they're not native to our state – or even to North America for that matter! This fully illustrated presentation will introduce you to a few of the almost 500 species of bees that are native to Georgia and which can be found in backyards across metro Atlanta region.
Find out how native bees like bumble bees, mason bees, leafcutter bees, sweat bees and carpenter bees are similar to, and different from, their better known honey bee cousins.
He frequently speaks about bees in city schools and helps to organize Decatur’s annual National Pollinator Week observance, as well as numerous other bee-related activities throughout the year.
