NATIVE BEES OF LIBERTY PARK

Did You Know? Seventy percent of all bees nest in the ground, and 90% are “solitary.” Join Naturalist Joe Malmisur as we learn about some of the 455 different native bees found in Ohio, and learn the difference between bees and wasps. You’ll also discover how you can improve native bee habitat so these important pollinators will continue doing their jobs. LP/Nature Center
