Hot and a bit wet but there was a good crowd of dedicated people there waiting to hear Bob's talk. He positivlely lights up when he's talking about native bees.

Join ANBees if you would like more information or have a look at Bob's website (link above in the body of information).

A choice of either day.

Is this a 2 day event or a choice of either day?
