Encaustic (Beeswax) Art Exhibit Tour and Wild Bees of BC Talk

September 24 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Encaustic Bees 1200x628 1024x536 Encaustic (Beeswax) Art Exhibit Tour and Wild Bees of BC Talk

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 bumble bees and a new checklist of the 25 bumble bees found in the Okanagan.

This tour and talk is free, so invite all your bee-loving friends.
