The Foreign Honey Bee

There are around 20,000 bee species worldwide.
North America has about 5,000 bee species.
On the West Coast we have approximately 430 species of native bees.
In Vancouver alone there are 56 different species of native bees...

And that doesn't include the honey bee.
Learn more about what caused the honey bee to spread from its European origin to the world over at one of our upcoming workshops:

Here are a few photos from a beekeeping class organized by the Environmental Youth Alliance. Thanks to Erin for bringing her amazing pizza box bee specimens to class!
