About The Event
Do bees really stay in hotels? Well, sort of. Most native bees like the mason bee are solitary and don't live in large hives like honey bees. They reproduce in small spaces like hollow reeds where an egg is laid and sealed with mud so it can pupate. Later on, when the baby bee hatches it chews its way out and flies away! Bee hotels are like birdhouses for native, solitary bees and beneficial insects, allowing a safe haven for them.
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.
