In early spring, before the green starts to pop, our native queen bumblebees begin to emerge from the ground after their long winter slumber in search of those early spring bloomers like blueberry, willow, cherry, maple, dogwood, redbud. Learn how to integrate these early season plants into your landscape for the queens! Without the nectar and pollen from these early blooming plants, our native bee populations can’t survive to create the next generation of fuzz balls we love to see in our yards.
Join us for the third Native Pairings Lecture at Earthplace on March 18 at 6:30 PM for pairings of local wine and cheese, and enjoy our fabulous native pairing of two local experts.
Plant for the Queen’s speakers will be Emily May, Bee Conservationist from the Xerces Society, and Jim Sirch, Education Coordinator and Native Plant Guru from the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History will teach us how to get ready for the First Day of Spring at this lecture that people are buzzing about!
