Save the Bees & Get to Know Native Species at the Northwest Stream Center!

Save the Bees and Get to Know Native Species with Demarus Tevuk at the Northwest Stream Center
Did you know that 600+ bee species call Washington State home? Did you know that the majority of them are native bee species? While none of our native bees make honey, or live in hives, native bees are the most important pollinators of wild plants, helping to maintain ecosystem diversity. In addition, bees help feed the world: On average, one out of every three bites of food we eat needs a pollinator to reproduce!
Join us on Saturday May 30th, at 1 PM at the Northwest Stream Center in Snohomish County’s McCollum Park for a wonderful presentation by local environmental educator, Demarus Tevuk. She will teach us about our local native bees, how they live, and what they need to thrive. You’ll be introduced to bee diversity, be shown how pollination effectiveness needs bee diversity, learn information about lifecycle and where bees live, along with useful land management tips. You’ll go home with practical knowledge for what you can do in your own backyard, farm, or orchard to help bees and other vital pollinators. There will be plenty of time for Q&A and discussion.
The Northwest Stream Center is located at the south end of Snohomish County’s McCollum Park, 600 128th Street SE, Everett WA 98208. Call 425-316-8592 to reserve your spot; $5 Adopt A Stream Foundation Members, $7 general admission.
