Native & Solitary Bees Observation Workshop

10:00 am-12:00 pm Bailey Homestead

Marisol Mata will be leading a hands-on workshop to observe native bees in SCCF’s Native Landscapes & Garden Center at the Bailey Homestead Preserve. Learn how to tell the difference between bees, wasps, and flies, and see which plants are the bees’ favorites. Watch how bees forage for nectar, what flower shapes they prefer, and where they go in the garden!

Marisol’s love for the outdoors and science has taken her across much of the Western Hemisphere, including field research in British Columbia, the Caribbean Islands, and down the Andes Mountains from Bolivia to Patagonia. Her work, whether focused on flora or fauna, has always involved using science to connect local communities with nature.

Please RSVP through Eventbrite/SCCF; $8 SCCF members, $10 non-members. Native Landscapes & Garden Center, 1300 Periwinkle Way.
