The Wild Bees Around You (Virtual Explorer Day)

July 21, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm PDT

Join us and nature mentor Eve Layman for a virtual Explorer Day as we explore wild bees of BC!  While the honey bee is really well known did you know they are not from BC?  This presentation will focus on the bees that you can find in wild places and your backyard, no hive needed!
Eve Layman is a volunteer Bee Ambassador with Border Free Bees as well as a Wild BC Facilitator in Kelowna and her day job is working with Sagebrush Tours guiding people on hikes and wine tours in the Okanagan Valley.

Explorer Day Etiquette:

  • Be prepared to HAVE FUN!
  • Pre-registration with your Club Leader is required for most Explorer Days (Friends are welcome if space permits).
  • Please arrive 5-10 minutes before the scheduled start time to ensure enough time for passport stamping and organization. Starting times are firm, and Leaders cannot wait for late-comers!
  • Please stay with the Leader and let them know if you are leaving early.
  • Children must always be accompanied by an adult guardian, who is responsible for their behaviour. Children consistently disrupting the experience of others may be asked to leave.
  • Bring appropriate weather gear, sunscreen, snacks, water, and other useful tools like binoculars, sketch books, cameras, and magnifying glasses.
