YPSS Presents Paul Kelly - Did you eat today? Thank a Bee!
June 9, 2023, 7:00pm
Honey bees play a vital role in agriculture through the pollination of food crops. One third of the food we eat is pollinated by bees. Honey bees provide 80% of this service – native bees provide the rest. Did you know there are 423 species of native bees living in Ontario? They are also vitally important as they pollinate many native plants. Hummingbirds and some bat species pollinate too! Honey bees face numerous health challenges and the role of the University of Guelph’s Honey Bee Research Centre (HBRC) is to help beekeepers keep their bees healthy. The centre conducts hive health studies and trains beekeepers on a global scale. In this presentation Paul Kelly will outline the challenges bees face, survey the research and education activities of the HBRC, and let us know how we can help them help bees.

Are you a reader? Do you like to discuss books that you have read? Then this group is for you. Join us in our casual monthly get together to share your love of reading with like-minded individuals. While we primarily read fiction, we do have two non-fiction titles on our list for this coming year. At each meeting every participant is given an opportunity to tell the group their thoughts on the book, their likes, and dislikes, and / or how the book has touched them. Discussion follows where we can all comment on different aspects of the story. Leader: Denise Roeleveld This Month's Book: The Only Café - By Linden MacIntyre
