See the Bee

We have many plants near Ontario and 26th that are popular with bees and butterflies.  We have catmint, russian sage ("magnificent plant") and bulbs from VanDusen.  Up to 200 bees have been seen and heard here at one time.  Ask gently, and they will let you pass as they are quite focused on gathering nectar - their sugar water that gives them energy to fly and collect nectar to make honey.
Can you see the bee?

37th Avenue is the Pollinator Corridor, complete with an Insect Hotel near Hamber Secondary!
