Bees are being studied in a myriad of ways at academic institutions around the world. Stanford University is doing an amazing job at helping with pollinator conservation, and we will share those stories during this workshop. We will discuss some of the most current research projects in the bee world, including stories of chimney bee research from University of Florida, Hawaiian yellow-faced bee conservation at University of Hawaii, and ZomBee research at San Francisco State University! Want to learn more about the fascinating field of bee research, and maybe even get involved in bee research yourself? If so, this is the workshop for you! Family-friendly event, all welcome.
