Talk and Walk: The World of Bees—Opening the Door with Community Science


Meet at Wave Hill House

Can you tell a honey bee from a mining bee? Join Entomologist Dr. Louise Lynch-O’Brien for a look at native bee biology and diversity in New York State, home to over 400 species of bees. Guided by Dr. Lynch-O’Brien, venture out into the gardens to observe and record bees and other pollinators at Wave Hill as part of the Empire State Pollinators Survey, a local community science project that contributes research directly to experts like Louise. As fascinating as they are, there is still a lot scientists do not know about bees and other pollinators, but you can help! Ages 10 and older welcome with an adult. Pollinators Weekend event.

Free, and admission to the grounds is free until noon. Registration not required.
