Wild Minds 2019 Day 8

Shifting from birds to bees today with bee lover and expert Marika from the Environmental Youth Alliance teaching us all about pollinators (yes, even wasps and flys are pollinators). It is not too hard to love a bee and all pollinators especially when we realize that their pollination accounts for 35% of food production. Armed with nets, the youth live trapped various insects to identify and release, providing the youth a close up opportunity to get to know these wonderful creatures and their interdependence with all life. Super cool was that one of the youth possibly caught a queen honey bee, a rare catch.
