Native Bees & Bee Hotels

This event is no longer on sale.

Saturday March 3

1:30 PM  –  3:30 PM


Did you know that there are thousands of kinds of bees? Wild hole-nesting bees, like our friendly mason and leafcutter bees, are efficient pollinators. They are looking for nesting habitat, and bee hotels are fast becoming a backyard staple. In this family class, appropriate for adults and children, you will learn how hole-nesting bees live, what they need in your garden to thrive, and how to provide them with a 5-star bee hotel. Your class fee includes nesting hole materials and the Native Bee Guide (26-page reference booklet) for you to take home. Bring your own clean, recycled, lightweight material for building the protective bee hotel, such as a half-gallon milk carton, family size soup can, or large coffee can. It can be anything you like, as long as it is about 7 to 8 inches deep and is easy to install on a garden wall or fence. One bee house and book per registration. Each adult can bring up to two children.
