Bumblebee Workshop - July 27th-28th, 2018

A talk on bumble bees, including their conservation status, what you can do to help, and the Bumble Bee Watch citizen science program, will be held on Friday, July 27 at 7:00pm (Lunan Hall, St. Paul’s United Church).  

 This will be followed on Saturday, July 28 by outings to search for and learn how to identify bumblebees in Thunder Bay in the morning and to Keith Wade’s rural Murillo property in the afternoon.  Meet at Boulevard Lake Park (parking lot just north of Algoma St N off Lyon Blvd W) for 9:30am Saturday.  If desired, arrangements can be made to meet for just the afternoon in Murillo.
