The Native Bee Society of BC (NBSBC) completed a 2022/23 Bee BC project that focused on training master melittologists in identifying and recording bee forage information. This included researching bee forage and creating reference collections. The goal is to share those reference collections at community outreach events to encourage people to plant bee forage that will benefit native bees.

Over the course of their project, the mater melittologists at NBSBC discovered over 90 different species of bees around the province and documented the types of plants those bees were using.
