Learn about the thousands of bee species in the environment, with Laurence Packer on Saturday, Aug. 23 at 11 a.m. at the Urquhart Butterfly Garden, Centennial Park in Dundas.
Without bees the ecosystem would collapse and humankind would perish, and yet few people know much about the many species of bee.
Packer is one North America’s foremost bee experts and everywhere he travels, he discovers that bees are disappearing. Packer will discuss the many myths about bees and identify some of the species which inhabit the Urquhart Butterfly Garden.
Workshop is free; bring a chair. If it rains, the session will be held at the Air Force Association next to the garden.
