Calling all gardeners! Native solitary bees need our help now more than ever as they face rapid declines in population and habitat loss. Solitary bees and beneficial insect communities thrive in gardens that provide pollinator-friendly plants, water sources and are free from pesticides but, oftentimes these gardens are lacking the most essential basic need, shelter. Join us this spring in this educational hands-on workshop to learn all about native solitary bees and get tips for making your garden pollinator-friendly while constructing your own buzz-worthy bee hotel.

This workshop will include virtual hands-on instruction on how to construct your very own bee hotel along with ideas for the ideal placement in your garden. All materials and instructions are included with registration and will be available for pick up the week prior to the workshop. Materials may be mailed to registrants for an additional fee.

Space is limited and registration is required. This class will take place online via Zoom.
