Alberta has over 300 native bee species but most research and attention is focused on a handful of managed species. Our native bees face many of the same threats as managed bees in addition to competition for food caused by the increasing presence of non-native, managed bees. More awareness of the diversity and
conservation issues surrounding our native bees is needed.
In 2017, the Alberta Native Bee Council was formed. The mission of the ANBC is to promote conservation of native pollinator communities through research and monitoring, advocacy, education, and collaboration to realize healthy and resilient native pollinator populations and habitat in Alberta.
Admission is free to Friends Members and $10 each for non-members. Youth 16 years of age or younger can attend free of charge with registered adult.
Registration is required.
