Texas Bee Watchers: 52 Gardens, 52 Weeks

Main Project Information
Where Texas Bee Watchers: 52 Gardens, 52 Weeks Texas USA

Texas Bee Watchers aims to increase awareness and knowledge of native bees in Texas. This year, the Bee Watchers are challenging Texans to plant 52 Bee Gardens in 52 Weeks.

How to Join

You become a Texas Bee Watcher once you become aware of native bees. No club meetings. No officers. No dues.

The Texas Bee Watcher website ( exists to get you started watching native bees in Texas. Information on bees, bee habitat, nest boxes, and biology is all there. And new information is posted all the time. It's also the place to learn how to participate in the 52 Bee Gardens, 52 Weeks Challenge.

Required Gear

To watch native bees, you only need to find some blooming plants. Once you see these hard-working insects, you may want to try catching a few native bees with a net, cooling them down in an ice chest, and looking at them close-up. Or maybe you'll want to practice your photo skills and photograph them? Sounds fun? It is!
