From bumblebees to leafcutters, there are dozens of wild bee species buzzing around Green-Wood. Join Sarah Kornbluth from the American Museum of Natural History and Green-Wood’s Manager of Horticulture Operations, Sara Evans, to learn about the different groups of bees we’ve found during our research collaboration with AMNH. We’ll see examples of the visual cues to identify bees and talk about the differences in their behavior and nesting requirements. You’ll be on the lookout for their amazing diversity the next time you visit Green-Wood or spot flower foragers in your own neck of the woods.

We’d love to continue to provide programming like this during the COVID crisis. Please support our work with a contribution of any size.

Free, RSVP required. This conversation is part of our new series of virtual programs about the horticulture and wildlife of Green-Wood, Zooming in on Nature.

A Zoom link will be emailed to you the day of the program, please arrive early to test your connection.
