 Additional Activities

Make a Bee Hotel

Not all bees build nests! Many of our best pollinators live in holes, by themselves. Welcome solitary bees to your yard by building a bee hotel!

You can gather small pieces of PVC pipe into a bundle and hang it in  your yard. Or you can do a little bit of carpentry, if you have a drill press. check out these two sites with tutorials.
