Just in time for the holidays–Xerces has a new native bee calendar!calendar-cover

“The Xerces Society and the Great Sunflower Project are happy to offer the 2010 Native Bee Calendar, which was created by Celeste Ets-Hokin. With magnificent close-up photos by Rollin Coville, this calendar takes you on a tour of twelve commonly encountered types of native bees. Each month features a full-page pin-up of a different bee genus, accompanied by a brief summary of its preferred plants, nesting needs, notes on how to identify it, and of course, a complete day-by-day calendar for each month.

All orders must be received online by Monday, November 30, 2009. Calendars will be shipped to arrive by the holidays.

Price: $14.00 (including shipping).

Xerces Society

Sales of this calendar will directly benefit the conservation work of both organizations.”

  4. I hope that is not a picture of Anthidium manicatum they have….Could be another Anthidium I guess.

  5. Thanks for your shameless pandering, bug girl; it saves me from having to do quite so much of it! Keep up the good work. – Bee well, from the calendar creator.

  6. No problem! I am a big fan of Xerces :)
