Wild Things: Native Bee Book talk with Dr Tim Heard
Where: Rockdale Library, 444-446 Princes Highway, Rockdale 2216
When: Thursday 2, February, 6:30 - 7:30pm
Cost: Free

Dr Tim Heard is an entomologist, ex-CSIRO research scientist, and long-term keeper and promoter of Australia’s native bees. In addition to conducting research and publishing scientific research papers, Tim has been keeping Australian native stingless bees for over 30 years and has developed new hive designs and techniques that allow better splitting and extraction of sugarbag and wax. He has been giving seminars and workshops on native bees since 1995. 

This event will discuss native bees in general, their diversity and beauty, why they are so popular and appreciated by people, their role in the world and the risks they face. The second part will be more of an author’s story of how the book came about, who contributed, the challenges that had to be overcome.

Wild Things has been assisted by the New South Wales Government through its Environmental Trust.
