About The Event
Do bees really stay in hotels? Well, sort of. Bee hotels are like a bird houses for native, solitary bees and beneficial insects, allowing a safe haven for them. Most native bees like the mason bee don't live in large hives like honey bees. They reproduce in small spaces such as hollow reeds laying an egg and sealing it with mud so it can pupate. Later on when the baby bee hatches it chews its way out and flys away! Join Stephanie from Sassy Bee for an evening in which you will learn about native pollinators and make your own bee hotel to take home, hang up, and help our native bees and insects. All materials and instruction will be provided to create your own, unique, mason jar bee hotel. Class runs about 1 1/2 hours.
