While the honey bee gets the most attention, native bees are abundant in almost every garden and often go unnoticed. Join UC Riverside entomologist Quinn McFrederick, Ph.D., on this garden talk and walk as he introduces the biology of some common native bees, their importance as pollinators, and the threats they are facing. Bring a hat, water, comfortable walking shoes, and all your questions and join us first in the East Classroom where Dr. McFrederick will give a short introductory talk before taking you out on the garden trails.
