145 - Native Bee Society of British Columbia - Connecting bee enthusiasts together


Coming Soon

There are a growing number of people interested in native bees, but not many regional organizations you can belong to. Today we hear about an example of building such organizations in the Canadian province of British Columbia.

Sarah Johnson is the founding President of the Native Bee Society of BC established July 2019. Sarah is also a pollination ecologist with an endless passion for the conservation of our furry friends, the bumble bees! She is a PhD candidate at Simon Fraser University studying how bumble bees are impacted by changing landscapes in British Columbia. She currently holds a Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship, one of the top PhD awards in Canada. Sarah was on a previous episode talking about her role in managing a national native pollinator conservation program based out of southern Ontario with citizen science.
