The ‘Bee City’ Movement: Shifting the Doomsday Narrative to Hope
Jennifer Marshman, RN, PhD candidate, Faculty of Arts

The "Bee City" movement is engaging municipalities in pollinator conservation through habitat creation, education, and celebration. Since Toronto became the first Bee City in Canada in 2016, there are now nearly 80 bee city affiliates across the country. Jennifer will explore what it means to be a Bee City with a focus on native bee species and how we can support them in our urban landscapes.

The lecture series is a partnership between the Town of Milton, Wilfrid Laurier University, and the Milton Public Library.

Admission is free. No registration is required. All lectures take place from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
