Event Details



Bee Hotel Location at Santa Fe River (East Alameda and Camino Escondido)


New Mexico is home to over 1000 bee species, ranging from carpenter bees the size of a thumb, to fairy bees the size of an eyelash. All are important pollinators of our diverse native plants, and provide the foundation for healthy and resilient ecosystems. Please join Olivia and Elizabeth by the Santa Fe River for a FREE bee talk and brief exploration of Eco-poetry.


Dr. Olivia Carril has been studying native bees for over 25 years. She is the coauthor of three books about native bees. She also conducts large scale surveys of bees in western states, and rare plants that are pollinated by bees.


Elizabeth Jacobson was the fifth Poet Laureate of Santa Fe and an Academy of American Poets 2020 Laureate Fellow. Her most recent book, Not into the Blossoms and Not into the Air, won several awards including the 2019 New Mexico-Arizona Book Award for both New Mexico Poetry and Best New Mexico Book. She is a co-founding director of Poetry Pollinators.
