Make a Bee Hotel for Native Pollinators

  • Wednesday, April 19, 2017, 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Help increase populations of native bees in your yard and garden with a handmade bee hotel! Native solitary bees, like mason bees and leafcutter bees, are gentle, easy to raise, and are as important for pollinating as honey bees.

Jacob Johnston from Cornell’s Lab of Ornithology will give a presentation on the life cycle of these fascinating native insects and show you how to make a bee hotel to attract them to your garden. Materials will be provided for participants to make bee hotels to take home. 

Pre-registration is required. Please call 272-2292 or email cab69@cornell.edu to register, or go here to register online.
