Nesting & Overwintering Habitat for Bees
The availability of nesting habitat is a critical yet often over-looked factor impacting native bee populations.
· Learn practical approaches to create and manage nesting and overwintering habitat features for bees, including dead wood, stems, brush, rock piles, bare ground, leaf litter, and more. Approaches are relevant to gardeners, landscapers, natural resource professionals, and anyone interested in taking the next step in supporting pollinators.
· After classroom activities go outside to search for active nests of stem-nesting bees!
· Instructed by Sarah Foltz Jordan (Xerces Society) and Colleen Satyshur (University of MN).
