Scientist Saturday: Native Bees

Saturday, May 11, 2019

1:00 PM-4:00 PM

Discover current research and meet real scientists at Scientist Saturdays. See hands-on demonstrations of scientists’ exciting research and ask all the questions you want.

Meet entomologist Meghan Barrett, who studies some of the 4,000 species of native bees that live in the United States. Learn about the fascinating and diverse lives of our buzzing buddies, play “To Bee or Not To Bee” to test your bee knowledge, color your own bee drawing using a real specimen and walk away with your very own unique bee fact to impress your friends.

The program welcomes guests of all ages to interact with the scientists, who are happy to converse with you about their current research.
