Bees are fascinating and an essential part of healthy ecosystems. Although beekeepers have been stewarding honey bees for thousands of years, honey bees are not native to our country and are not the best pollinators for many of our native plants. We have an amazing diversity of native bees in Massachusetts and they are adapted to pollinating the native plants of our wetlands, roadsides, parks and other open spaces. As a group, they are diverse and beautiful and they are in need of our support.
