My name is Laura and I have been living in Salt Lake City for 13 years. I know about bees and I like to share. I started the Wild Bee Project in 2015.
The Wild Bee Project is about the bees! Bees are engaging creatures. Their absorbed, busy, behavior as they gather pollen is seductive and delightful to watch. There are 1,000 species of wild bees in Utah! Wild bees are important pollinators and have always been there, in the 'background,' supporting our food web and keeping our gardens blooming year after year. We need bees. And these bees need us, too - to provide safe habitats for them in our cities, farms, and backyards.
