Rain date: Sunday, June 26th

Take a summer stroll through Green-Wood and there’s one thing you’ll see (and hear) at every turn—tons of wild bees buzzing about their daily routine. Bee biologist Sarah Kornbluth of the American Museum of Natural History leads this walking tour to highlight how bees live, the resources they need, and where they make their homes across the Cemetery. Learn about the diversity of wild bee species found at Green-Wood (including bumble, carpenter, miner, leaf cutter, sweat, and more) and beecome a bee expert in just ninety minutes.

Price: $25, and $20 for members
