The Bruce Museum in Greenwich is pleased to announce its latest exhibition, Wild Bees: Photographs by Paula Sharp and Ross Eatman, opening on April 14 and continuing through November 11, 2018. This exhibition features exquisite color photographs of wild bees in their natural habitats, along with an exploration of their varied lifestyles, giant bee models, real bee specimens under the microscope, and more. The photographs are part of an ongoing wild bee project undertaken by photojournalist and writer Paula Sharp and nature photographer Ross Eatman. Wild bees are important pollinators of wildflowers, garden flowers and commercial crops including fruit trees, berries, melons and garden vegetables.
The Wild Bees exhibition also includes several related programs of interest to gardeners, including a special symposium, “Wild about Bees: How Gardeners Benefit from Pollinators,” on June 13, 6-8 pm.
