Did you know that there are about 1,600 species of native bees in California? Jaime Pawelek, Project Manager at UC Berkeley's Urban Bee Lab, will be telling us all about native bees at our last talk of the year. Join us to learn about the ecology and biology of native bees, what plants they prefer, and how to attract them to your garden.
Help take care of one of our native plant restoration sites! People with all levels of experience are welcome. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Please wear sturdy shoes, comfortable work clothes, and bring a water bottle. SPAWNERS will provide tools, gloves, and snacks.
Please RSVP if bringing a group of 4 people or more to firstname.lastname@example.org or 510-665-3538. Groups of 10 or more minor volunteers (under 18 years old) must be accompanied by a supervising adult.
Every volunteer must have valid waivers on file. Volunteers under 18 must have their waivers signed by a parent or legal guardian. Click here for waiver forms and more information.
