Bee Haven Walk & Talk


10:00am to 12:00pm in the Gardens Meeting Room
with Christine Casey, Ph.D. of the Häagen-Dazs Honey Bee Haven at UC Davis

Spring is a great time to create a pollinator-friendly garden... learn to create a "bee haven" in your own back yard!

Flower-filled gardens support countless species of bees and other beneficial pollinators. Bee pollination brings us much of our food and supports most of our wildland plants. Interest in helping bee pollinators has never been greater, but what can you do in your own garden to make sure it is bee-friendly? Christine Casey of the Häagen-Dazs Honey Bee Haven at UC Davis will present a review of common bees, what they need to thrive, and how we can provide that in our gardens. The class will continue out in the Gardens for a look at plants and bees.

Registration for the lecture cost $15 per person and includes Gardens admission for the day. Payment is due upon sign-up. Please note, the class registration fee is non-refundable unless the presentation has been canceled or rescheduled by the Gardens. Reserve your space by phoning 707-964-4352 ext. 16 or just stop by The Garden Store at MCBG.
