Join Krystle Hickman in this informative Zoom lecture about native landscaping and native bees. Native garden The Crescent Farm, at the Los Angeles County Arboretum, is a excellent example of how to save native bees by supporting a healthy biodiverse ecosystem.  To save the native bees we must save the native plants.  In this talk, with examples from The Crescent Farm, you will learn about native bees and what you can do at home to help sustain them.

Krystle Hickman is a TEDx Speaker, Artist, Community Scientist and Photographer based in Los Angeles, California. Through artful photography, Krystle, strives to increase awareness of the decline in native bee species as well as highlight their biodiverse ecosystems. Her photography work has been featured in various online and print editorials.

Since 2019 Krystle has worked with gardens like the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Arlington Garden; regularly photographing and documenting their bee native habitats. Her aim is to keep accurate records of population changes. She is duplicating her research in the Mojave Desert, the Santa Monica Mountains and yards with native gardens. Throughout the process she consults with experts in different areas of Melittology (Scientific Study of Native Bees.)
