"For many people the word "bee" is synonymous with the non-native "honeybee." But there are many kinds of bees in nature, even within urban areas in northern California. Many people are simply missing out on perceiving these beautiful, interesting, and beneficial insects. This workshop will showcase native bees for people who like nature, and for those who are involved in land management and conservation. Presentations will range from basic and introductory to highly technical. No specific knowledge of bees is needed ahead of time, although a basic understanding of general insect morphology and some familiarity with dichotomous keys is expected."
