[ARCHIVED] Pollinator Week

Bee-Motel

Pollinator week celebrates the importance of native pollinators for our food security and environment. This is also a time to recognize the vulnerability of many pollinators that has resulted from development, pesticides, and climate change, and to learn new ways that we can be proactive, throughout the year, in helping our local pollinators thrive. 

This year, the City of College Park's Bee City USA Committee and College Park Art Exchange will be teaming up to host a Bee Hotel Building Workshop, and all member for our community are invited to participate. A Bee hotel is a small structure that provides nesting sites for solitary bees such as mason bees and leaf cutter bees. These bees do not sting, are docile, non-aggressive, and pollinate most of our favorite flowers. Bee Hotels are easy to build and maintain, are a great way for kids and adults to learn about the life of pollinators, and can help the local population of some bees thrive in our area. 

The workshop will be held on Saturday, June 25th from 1-4pm at Davis Hall 9217 52st Ave., College Park, MD, 20740. You must pre-register and a small fee of $10 per bee house will be used to offset the cost of materials.
