Professor Nigel Raine from Guelph University is conducting a project which is focused on monitoring native pollinators, especially wild bees, in Ontario. We didn't realize that Ontario is “a national hotspot for wild bee diversity in Ontario with around 420 of the 850 species found in Canada.”

We make a collection of insects every second Wednesday from May through October. If you come on that day you will see the coloured dishes set out in a pattern on the grass. Take a peek and see what insects are found here at Big Bay.


Our gardens are full of busy bees of various kinds. We are very fortunate in that we have two close neighbours, both with their own bee yards, so our plants are very well served.
