Gardens can be a haven for all sorts of bees. The U.S. and Canada have 4000 species of bees. The Columbia Basin has nearly 650 species, Seattle has nearly 100 (so far). Learn about our bees–who they are, how to recognize them, what makes them different from a wasp. Discover hands-on ways to help bees both locally, by modifying your garden, and globally, by participating in citizen science projects like the Great Sunflower Project.
