Series on Bees
Why are native bees such a buzz-worthy topic? These magnificent, hard-working insects are diverse, fascinating and vital to landscapes. In this 3-part series learn about bee ecosystems, morphology, behavior and society, nesting habits, diets and how to tell bees from wannabees (mimics). Taking place during the annual Texas Pollinator Bioblitz, this series is the perfect way to share your observations with your community through iNaturalist. We’ll talk conservation too!
