Bee Aware of Your Native Bees project finishes with a terrific opportunity to learn to identify native bees.
There will be an ID session held at each of the project sites next week.
This is the final site-related activity conducted during the project. If you can’t make it to the date at the Community Gardens there are alternative sessions around the mountains and Western Sydney region.
Sessions are as follows;

Saturday the 17th of January.
All are welcome, there is no fee. Please bring your cameras and a clean jar to catch some bugs. Site managers will need to ensure the ID kits are available for the day (including the pre frozen ice packs).
