Alberta is home to over 300 species of bees, most of which are solitary bees. Solitary bees are not aggressive, unlike other types of social bees that swarm and live in colonies. Solitary bees are also very efficient pollinators of the plants that we eat for food. However, pollinators are declining for a number of reasons, including: habitat loss, pesticide use, and climate change. The Edmonton and Area Land Trust’s natural areas in the countryside around Edmonton are homes to pollinators for the surrounding agricultural lands. However, we can all do our help to help urban pollinators. Stop by to learn how you can help!
