Upcoming Events At This Venue

January 31, 2015

A new exhibition at the Oakland Museum of California examines the wildly diverse and intricate world of one of the most important creatures to human agriculture and the natural environment. Through family-friendly experiences, hands-on activities, and media, Bees: Tiny Insect, Big Impact is the first major museum exhibition to focus on the incredible diversity of bees in California and the urgent issue of bee population declines statewide. Bees tells the story of these amazing insects, while providing visitors the opportunity to learn about the value of bees to our economy and ecosystems, and discover how simple but powerful actions can help bees to survive in a changing world. Covering topics such Bay Area beekeeping, the diversity of California native bee species, and the similarities between bees and humans, the exhibition features cutting-edge science on bee behavior and conservation, opportunities for visitors to get involved in research, and ways to make their own yards and neighborhoods more attractive to bees.
