Invite some backyard buddies to pollinate your garden by making a native bee hotel that can house a variety of our native bees. A short presentation on the importance of our native pollinators will be followed by a hands-on demonstration on how to make a native bee hotel. Participants will design and assemble their own hotel to take home with them. There is a fee of $5 per hotel you wish to make, but most of the materials can be scavenged in your own yards. Please bring your own cordless drill since we have a limited supply. Class limit of 10 people. $5, plus material fee of $5 for each hotel built. There are over 300 native bees in Pennsylvania. Monday, May 20th is world bee day.
