WBFS July Meeting: Native Bees

  • Woodend Neighbourhood House 47 Forest Street Woodend, VIC, 3442 Australia (map)

At the WBFS meeting this month Sally Scopel is going to focus on the exciting world of native bees and draw our attention to the hundreds of different species of native bees that could be in our gardens in the Macedon Ranges and neighbouring regions. In this session, Sally will give hints on how to distinguish between flies and wasps; what we can do to encourage native bees to flourish in our gardens; ideas for bee hotels, hints and tips; and an indication of the citizen projects out there where we can record our sightings.

The session promises to be fun with pop quizzes with prizes. All are welcome. Please bring $5 and a small plate to share.

When: 3-4.30pm Sunday 15th July

Where: Woodend Neighbourhood House, 47 Forest St, Woodend
