Build an Urban Bee Garden

A brief but fascinating conversation with Dr. Rollin Coville, a UC Berkeley trained entomologist, led Urban Sprouts to the website for Urban Bee Gardens. For those of you interested in local and native pollinators, check it out! You can learn amazing information about bees such as:
  • There are about 25,000 species of bees known worldwide.
  • In the U.S. we have almost 4,000 species
  • In California slightly more than 1,500 species have been recorded.
  • In the East Bay cities of Albany and Berkeley 81 species of bees have been identified from residential neighborhoods.
You can also learn how to build your own Bee Garden!

Thank you Dr. Coville forguiding Urban Sprouts to this fun website!
