NATIVE BEE HOUSE CONSTRUCTION

Monday, April 3, 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM, Echo Hill Lodge, ages 8 through adult, $15 per house

You may have built a bird house, but have you ever built a bee house?  The Orchard Mason Bee is a small, iridescent blue native pollinator of early-blooming plants like fruit trees.  It is non-aggressive as there is no colony or hive to defend.  Instead, these bees nest inside a hollow plant stem or a hole previously bored by another insect in wood.  Park Naturalist Laura Bush will teach us about the life cycle of these bees, and then lead us in building a birdhouse-like structure filled with hollow plant stems to provide some habitat for them.
