Native Bees of Tennessee: The Unsung Heroes of our Crops and Native Flowering Plants

 Holly Taylor

“Save the bees!” has become a very common catchphrase, shouted from a variety of platforms �" but which bees are we to save? You may be surprised to discover the incredible diversity of bee species that are found on our continent and even in your own backyard. Join Holly Taylor for an immersion into the amazing world of our native bees. We will explore their identification and ecology, as well as some easy ways you can make your backyard more accommodating to them. Holly Taylor has been filling the role of Assistant State Naturalist for Tennessee State Parks since 2018, working with our exemplary State Naturalist, Randy Hedgepath. Prior to that she worked as a naturalist and interpretive ranger for state parks since 2006, and even spent a couple of years as a traveling wildlife presenter for the Natural History Educational Company of the Midsouth (now Animalogy). She is also the chapter coordinator for the Cumberland Mountain State Park chapter of the Tennessee Naturalist Program. She graduated from Tennessee Tech University with a bachelor's in Conservation Biology in 2009. Holly has spent her whole life pursuing a deeper understanding of the natural world. Whether in or out of uniform, she loves nothing more than learning about Tennessee's incredible biodiversity and sharing that knowledge with others. She travels statewide leading hikes, giving presentations and assisting with events, all with the goal of connecting the public to the incredible natural resources our state has to offer.
