March 14:  What’s the Buzz? Native Bees of Massachusetts
Sean Kent, Education and Summer Camp Director at Mass Audubon’s Museum of American Bird Art

Bees are fascinating and an essential part of healthy ecosystems. Although bee keepers have been stewarding honey bees for thousands of years, honey bees are not native to our country and are not the best pollinators for many of our native plants. We have an amazing diversity of native bees in Massachusetts and they are adapted to pollinating the native plants of our wetlands, roadsides, parks and other open spaces. As a group, they are diverse and beautiful and they are in need of our support.

In partnership with North and South River Watershed Association, MassAudubon – South Shore Sanctuaries and South Shore Natural Science Center.

Sponsored by:  Clean Harbors, Rockland Federal Credit Union, Mass Cultural Council, and Marshfield, Norwell, Pembroke and Scituate Cultural Councils
