      Make a Bee Hotel for Native Pollinators

      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. Register and pay online, or call CCE-Tompkins at 272-2292 and we will register you online using your input. Pre-registration is required to hold your place in the class, and also in the event that a class is postponed or cancelled and we need to contact participants.

      Questions? Contact Chrys Gardener, Commercial / Community Horticulture Educator, cab69@cornell.edu, (607) 272-2292 (Voicemail #241)

      Cost: Payment required - $10/person includes cost of materials
