Michigan is home to over 467 species of wild bees, making our state an incredible oasis of diversity and wildlife. However, many of these bees need our help in order to persist and thrive for years to come. Join us as we take a look at some of the native bees you might find in your own backyard and explore the ways you can help save the bees!

Speaker Biography:
