You'll learn about the importance of native bees, native bee plant relationships, native bee life cycles, and honeybees vs. native bees. We'll decorate the native bee houses, which consist mainly of upcycled wood cut to assemble triangle shaped houses. Participants will hand roll tubes for the houses, and we may also create some houses out of pop bottles. Discussion on where to hang houses, what plants to plant nearby and what signs to look for, as well as after care instructions, will follow, and everyone who wants to will be able to take a bee house home with them!
