The monarch butterfly is probably the most famous insect specialist (the caterpillars only feed on milkweed), but did you know that many native bees are also specialists?

Female native bee specialists or oligoleges, only collect pollen from a narrow range of native plants; this could mean just one plant genus or many genera that belong to one plant family. During this Walk in the Garden, Heather will highlight many of these native plant-bee specializations as well as the overlapping habitat requirements of the bees and plants.

The presentation will also include the threats to specialist bees such as habitat loss and climate change.
