It's Great to Bee Home:
Bee Habits, Habitats, and Hotels Workshop

The plight of honey bees has been in the news a lot recently, but some of the most important pollinators are native bees who specialize in pollinating flowers that are native to the regional ecologies of Canada. Native bees also have to deal with the loss of habitat brought about by urbanization. Do your part to support our native bees by building your own bee hotel!

Join us on Saturday, April 22nd for a presentation on native and honey bees led by our Curatorial Assistant (and amateur beekeeper!) Ben Mitchell followed by a hands-on workshop in which attendees will build their own bee hotel.

Space is limited, so please reserve your spot by

For approximately $150 to $220 per tree you will get a site consultation in your yard with an arborist, a five to eight foot tall tree (or two to four feet tall for evergreen trees) and full planting service. LEAF also has a Do-It-Yourself option, for those who like to get their hands dirty! For more information visit LEAF.
