Other Local Events
Sara Guerrero on California's Native Bees - Tuesday, November 18, 2014 at 7PM in the Ukiah City Council Chambers. Sara Leon Guerrero, a native of Anderson Valley, will talk about the research at the UC Berkeley Urban Bee Lab founded by Dr. Gordon Frankie. Their goal is to document and explore the diversity of native bees from Northern to Southern California. Does a flower type in a garden in Ukiah attract the same kinds of bees as the same flower in a garden in Santa Barbara and beyond? Do the same bees in southern California prefer the same flowers as the same bees in northern California? This will be a chance for us to learn how to participate in this recovery by making changes in the way we garden.
