Did you know that BC is Canada’s hotspot for wild bee diversity, with more than 50% of all the native bees found in Canada? Join Encaustic Bee Artist, Kelly Maier, on a tour of her show featuring “Bumble Bee Colony in Springtime” and larger-than-life encaustic portraits of wild bees.

Join the discussion as we learn how to identify wild bees, what factors are affecting the species, and what you can do to be a part of the growing community of people working to make a difference.

Leave with resources to help you identify wild bees, recognize wild bee-loving plants, have a visual guide to bumblebees and a new checklist of the 25 bumblebees found in the Okanagan.
