Gain hands-on experience creating habitat for native Hawaiian yellow-faced bees. Some species of yellow-faced bees are endangered and others have declined in recent years or are simply not found anymore. These bees do not sting but are important coadapted pollinators for many Hawaiian native plants and habitats.
You will also learn what plants native Hawaiian yellow-faced bees use for forage as well as pests, practices and introduced species that may be limiting their populations.
Please join us as we learn about, and scout for bees in the garden and bring home a wealth of information and a bee-autiful self-made Native Bee Block to see what is buzzing in your habitat.
What to Bring:
Please bring a cordless drill if you have. Also safety goggles and gloves if you have your own that you'd like to use during this workshop. The more drills available the better! Bring a lunch to enjoy in the gardens after the workshop.

Dr. Jason Graham began working with endangered Hawaiian yellow-faced bees in 2014 and has developed conservation tools and monitoring protocols that have been implemented by DLNR, UH and USFWS to better understand and overcome challenges facing these endemic pollinators. He is currently assisting the Bishop Museum through a Disney Conservation Fund to develop the Pollinators in Paradise exhibit, educational program and citizen science project which aims to spread awareness of Hawaiian yellow-faced bees and enlist visitors and residents of the Hawaiian Islands to participate in data collection that will help guide conservation efforts. Join these efforts by learning about the bees and what you can do to help.
