DRAWING BUMBLE BEES
ON PAPER (AND INTO YOUR YARD!)
Join Stephey Baker, a local creative and avid urban gardener, during Pollinator Week as she guides you step-by-step in creating a small bumble bee drawing. You don’t need to be an artist in order to participate, and it’s okay if you’re a little scared of bees and other things “buzzing” in the garden. If you’re a lover of flowers and plants, and are excited to experience the beauty of this hard-working super pollinator, then this class is for you! Through the process of creating your own bumble bee drawing, you’ll learn how to identify the bumble bees in your backyard; why bumble bees are 2-4 times more effective pollinators per bee than honey bees or solitary bees; what to plant for pollinators regardless of the size of your yard (or lack of it); how to distinguish wasps, hornets, and the flies that mimic bumble bees; why bumble bees are an annual insect; and more! Stephey is enrolled in a pollinator steward certification program through Pollinator Partnership and is excited to share what she’s learning with you. Come celebrate National Pollinator Week, get creative, and be informed by all the buzz in a relaxed and inspired environment.
