An interview with Jenny Hopwood from the Xerces Society all about the life cycle of stem nesting bees and how we can create habitat for them. Often known for their work with pollinator habitat, the Xerces Society works with any invertebrate species.
Their mission: The Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation is an international nonprofit organization that protects the natural world through the conservation of invertebrates and their habitats. As a science-based organization, we both conduct our own research and rely upon the most up-to-date information to guide our conservation work. Our key program areas are: pollinator conservation, endangered species conservation, and reducing pesticide use and impacts.
This is our first interview over Zoom so the audio does sound a little different at times but it was worth it to bring you this fantastic interview!

And lastly, here is a link to a bee nesting survey, and is a way for people to enter and share their observations about plant materials used by native bees! As we talked about, we are still learning about plant materials that bees use in nest constructions above ground, and this is a great way for people to help everyone learn more: https://bit.ly/2YdWg3n
