We're Buzzing about Native Bees!
On Saturday, April 30 from 2PM to 3PM, we will have a free screening of the documentary My Garden of a Thousand Bees. The event is free and family-friendly.
We are also giving away free packets of wildflower seeds and native bee identification guides, and we have several books about bees, butterflies, and pollinator gardening available for all ages to check out.
Viewers will see bees like they’ve never seen them before in this PBS Nature documentary by acclaimed wildlife filmmaker Martin Dohrn. Locked down at home during the pandemic, he set out to record all the bee species in his tiny urban garden in Bristol, England. Filming with one-of-a-kind lenses he forged at his kitchen table, he catalogues more than 60 different species, from Britain’s largest bumblebees to scissor bees the size of mosquitoes. Over long months, Dohrn observes how differences in behavior set different species apart. He eventually gets so close to the bees he can identify individuals by sight, documenting life at their level as we have never seen it before.
