Bees and other insects will be the focus of a couple of programs on Sunday, May 19 at Tilden Nature Area in Berkeley.
Naturalist James Wilson will host a meet and greet with local bees, while talking about the importance of a healthy bee population, from 10:30 a.m. to noon.
Then from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., Wilson will lead an insect safari through the Tilden Nature Area. Join him to help turn over logs and use a net to catch and release the quarry. The program is designed for ages six and older.
Both programs are free. Meet at Tilden’s Environmental Education Center, located at the north end of Central Park Drive. For information, call (510) 544-2233.
