Talk and Walk: “The Buzz on BC Bumblebees”

April 26 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

An Illustrated talk by Syd Cannings.  The recent declines of some bumble species have engaged the public interest in pollinators and spurred new research and monitoring efforts.  In Canada, five bumblebee  species have been assessed as at risk and a sixth is being assessed in the coming year.  How do we turn this crisis around?   And how do we count bees to know if things are getting better or if they are continuing to get worse?

Working with his brother Richard, Syd has written a number of books on the Natural History of British Columbia including: British Columbia: A Natural History;The New BC Roadside Naturalist; Geology of British Columbia; and The World of Fresh Water.
