Hailey Public Library will buzz into spring with a free talk about ‘The Amazing World of Native Bees’ with educator and forester Linda Ries on Thursday, March 23, 5:30-7:00 PM at Town Center West. The talk is co-sponsored with the Wood River Chapter of the Idaho Native Plant Society.
Native bees are a primary pollinator for agricultural crops. However, these fascinating creatures are in decline all over the United States as a result of loss of habitat, toxins and disease. The good news is that there’s much we can do in our own backyards to help them out. But first we need to learn more about the unique natural history and lifestyle of the species who live here.
