Enjoy the height of bee season!   Find a patch of lavender or fireweed and witness bumblebees in action. Roam the beaches of the Sound or the roadsides east of the Cascades to discover the great variety of bees that use gumweed. Bring a magnifying glass for a closer look at the delicate fairy bees on tall buckwheat. Search for the magical Clarkia amoena flowers and watch the petal cutters skillfully do their work. There's so much happening in Washington State! Embrace the wonders of native bees and uncover the vital roles they play in our ecosystem.
