Brandon's Offical Bee Contest
Bee City Brandon is asking Brandonites to “buzz in” on which type of bee should have the title of “Official Bee of Brandon”!
Beginning June 1st and running through to the end of Pollinator Week on June 28th, Brandon residents can visit this Bee City Brandon Survey Monkey link (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PPVJR9K) and make their selection for Brandon’s top bee from the following three bees:
The Orange-Belted Bumblebee
The Green Sweat Bee
The bees chosen for the contest are native to the Brandon area and each have unique traits described in the survey link. The profile of each bee will be posted on @beecitybrandon’s Facebook, Twitter & Instagram pages through the month of June! Following the survey’s end on June 28th, an announcement of the winner will be made on social media.
Bee City Brandon is a grass roots committee dedicated to creating pollinator habitats and educating Brandonites on native bees and other pollinators. Bee City Canada designated Brandon as an official “Bee City” in May of 2018, Manitoba’s first Bee City.
