Native Pollinators and Mason Bee Lodge Workshop
March 12, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm| $20
Did you know that Colorado has over 900 species of bees? The honey bee is just one of those species. So what’s all the BUZZ? Humans depend on pollinators for about 1/3rd of our diet, with the most nutritious part being vegetables, fruits, and nuts. Many of these staples are pollinated by native bees! However, bees and other pollinator populations around the world are declining. Lisa Mason, Horticulture Agent for CSU Extension in Arapahoe County since 2018, will talk about pollinator biology including native bees, how to recognize native bees, how to develop pollinator habitat, the facts on stinging insects and how to support our pollinators locally. Following the presentation, “make & take” your own Mason Bee Lodge.
