Love bees? Build your own Bee Hotel during this free webinar 2/27 at 1:00pm about backyard native bees. Gain more understanding and a hotel for them to call home this spring. Optional Bee Hotel Build-a-Long Kits may be ordered by 2/15.
Dr. Elsa Youngsteadt will kick off this event with the biology of native bees and then the expert crafters at the Makerspace will guide us on a build-a-long.
For the build: You can bring your own materials from a list provided at this link. Or, for those who do not have saws and want to avoid a trip to the hardware store, we have a limited number of pre-cut lumber kits available for purchase, too (shipping to NC and surrounding states only). Kits must be purchased by February 15th.

The event is free to attend with registration, open to all, and we welcome anyone who wants to learn about native bees, whether you stick around for the build or not.
