The Buzz on Alberta Bumble Bees

Time: March 5 @ 7 p.m.
Location: Online
Price: By Donation

Big, hairy, and personable. Yes, we’re talking about Bumble Bees, of course. This species is a welcome, cheerful sight in any garden. Worldwide, there are about 250 known species of bumble bees; of those, 29 reside in Alberta.

How important are they in maintaining our ecosystems? What threatens them? Join us on March 5th for an online night of learning about Bumble Bees with expert Syd Cannings.

As a Species at Risk Biologist for the Canadian Wildlife Service in Whitehorse, Yukon, Syd works on a variety of issues dealing with assessment, listing, and recovery of species at risk from bumble bees to bears.

A healthy relationship to the wilderness is not in the least incompatible with civilized living. Indeed, I believe it to be an indispensable condition thereof; that no man is truly civilized unless he is involved in and cares for the wilderness.
