Presented by Krystle Hickman Community Scientist and Conservation Photographer

California is home to over 1,600 species of native bees, and they are a vital part of the ecosystem. Have you ever seen a native bee? Do you have native bees in your garden? Through Krystle's stunning macro photography, get to know these important pollinators, what makes them so special, and signs of a healthy garden.

Krystle Hickman is a National Geographic Explorer 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 has been featured in The LA Times, children's books, and scientific journals.

Krystle works with gardens like the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Arlington Garden, regularly photographing and documenting their native habitats. She also collects data on rare bee species in the Mojave Desert, Joshua Tree, Anza-Borrego, the Santa Monica Mountains, yards with native gardens, and more.
