Mini Workshop about Bees - July 30th

Bees on Sunflower Bees on Sunflower Sabine Borchers

Bonita Bock will present ways in which our bee population is being challenged as well as ways we can be helpful human allies to these important pollinators on Saturday July 30, 2022 at the Everson Ranch from 10 am-12 Noon

There are 900 different varieties of bees in Colorado. Far more than only the honey bee. Bees pollinate 1/3 of our diet. These complex creatures are having trouble in our environment today and we will discuss several reasons for this situation as well as efforts at mitigating their decline.

Bonita is a retired college professor in an entirely different discipline, but with a love for life-long learning, she comes to these presentations having gleaned a wealth of knowledge on a wide range of topics as a lecturer currently for Active Minds in Denver, Colorado. She has enjoyed soaking in the Valley View Hot Springs for many years.

Should you be interested, this free workshop would also be an opportunity to ask her about her experience of volunteering at the Everson Ranch for two weeks last year. You might like to bring your lunch and enjoy a tour of the Ranch after the workshop.
