How to attract backyard bees


Did you know that there are 1,600 species of bee native to California, and over 20,000 species worldwide? These flying insects are responsible for pollinating a third of the world's food crops and can be diverse and abundant even in urban settings.

Learn about bees and why they matter and what you can do to create safe and appealing spaces for them in your backyard during the "All About Bees" Learn 'n Grow Class at SummerWinds Nursery on Sunday, June 23.

The free, 30-minute class starts at 9 a.m. SummerWinds is located at 725 San Antonio Road, Palo Alto.
