Event description

Description

When most people think of bees, they think of honey bees. But did you know that there are over 475 species of bees in New York?

Join us to find and document the many species of native bees at Staten Island Zoo! Armed with your curiosity, your phone and the iNaturalist app, you'll search to capture photos of some of the 450+ species of bees in New York.

You'll begin your adventure at the bee sanctuary managed by The Honeybee Conservancy, and take an extraordinary look into the fascinating world of bees, the super pollinators responsible for nearly one in every three bites of food you eat.

See below for the day's event schedule:


11:50AM Bee demonstration begins

1:30PM Event ends
