Buzzing over native Bees

Speaker: Kit Prendergast

When people think bee, they usually think of the European honeybee. Yet Australia hosts an incredible diversity of native bees. PhD researcher and native bee scientist Kit Prendergast will showcase the amazing diversity of native bees that occur in Australia, with a focus on southwest WA.

You will come away buzzing about these charismatic critters, and armed with knowledge about how to help promote native bees in the ‘burbs.

Kit will also be selling her booklets on ‘Bee Hotels for Native Bees’ at $25 per booklet.
