Bee Programs – One Up (Tuesday March 14) and One Back


As long-time readers know, the Owl is a huge fan of Lincoln Land Conservation Trust and Lincoln Conservation. Not only do they manage some wonderful Conservation spaces, but they have fantastic educational programs which are sometimes live and sometimes on zoom, and next week, Tuesday March 14 at 7 pm, you can learn about the buzzy bees in your own backyard.

While the videos and photos are about Lincoln bees, you and I know that bees know no property lines. They know about messy yards with places to overwinter, they know about pollinator plants, and they know they have better things to do than to mess with your kids. I cannot wait to hear that buzzy purr of a giant bumble perusing the herb garden. Bring on Spring!

Anyway, on Tuesday March 14, turn on your computer and head over to zoom for this presentation:

Fireside Chat: Wild Backyard Bees

Tuesday March 14th at 7pm on Zoom

LLCT’s Winter/Spring 2023 Fireside Chats continue! Norman Levey will present an introduction to backyard native bees, illustrated with his photographs and videos shot in conservation fields, LLCT pollinator installations, and private gardens throughout Lincoln.

This is a free program and all are welcome. Register to receive the meeting link.


If you missed the program on plant-pollinator systems last week, you can catch that one on video. On March 1st, Dr. Rob Gegear gave a presentation about plant-pollinator systems. You can find out more about Dr. Gegear, perhaps also known but not really as Dr. Bee, through Sudbury Valley Trustees’ website here. Dr. Gegear spoke about the expansion of his “Beecology” community data collection efforts which now include butterflies. This presentation was a Freedom’s Way National Heritage Area program and kicked off a series of programs about pollination. Watch the recording here.


Thanks, Lincoln!
