Most people have no idea that there are at least 600 species of native bees in Washington State. Some are yet to be discovered, and many (about 10 percent of species in Washington State) do not have names. With meticulous care, Dr. Don Rolfs, a life-long naturalist and retired dentist, is building a field guide. He hopes to inspire an appreciation for the rich diversity of native bees and their vital role in pollination. “If we care about flowers and food, we should care about native bees,” Rolfs says.
This event is being sponsored by Wenatchee River Institute.
