Event Series Event Series: Bumble Bee Survey

Bumble Bee Survey

July 16, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Did you know that there are 27 species of bumble bee found in Manitoba?

Join entomologist Emily Hanuschuk from the University of Manitoba to find out how bumble bee populations are doing at FortWhyte! You will learn how to safely handle these fuzzy pollinators and observe them before releasing them back into the wild.



Emily will be leading three surveys; you are welcome to attend one or all three!
