Honeybee Festival!

| Events

Wild Ones Greater RVA was at the Rockwood Park Backyard Beekeepers Association’s Honeybee Festival! We were pleased to exhibit alongside Plant Virginia Natives and the Pocahontas Chapter of the Virginia Master Naturalists, as well as the beekeeper volunteers at the “Bee Petting Zoo” station.

We spoke with many people about the importance of native plants to pollinators, including honeybees, and also about the importance of native plants to our *native* bees, many of which are specialist foragers.
