Did you know that the Albany Pine Bush Preserve is home to over 200 species of native bees?! Join us on a hike for an introduction to these native beauties as we examine them on the trail. Depending on how many bees we stop to look at, we could hike as far as 0.9 miles. Learn how much we owe these insects and how you can help native pollinators in your own backyard!

This program will meet at the wooden and metal kiosk at trailhead #1 (not inside the Discovery Center).
