Attracting Bees and Butterflies

thCAK15P3JMonday, May 6, 10:00-11:30am
How many of you have heard about Colony Collapse Disorder?  The beekeeper goes to his hives and there is not a bee in sight, they have all disappeared?  Although that disorder is specific to honey bees, all pollinators have been declining in numbers, including butterflies, bats, and our native bees.   Did you know that there are about 4,000 species of native bees in North America?  At least 40 native bee species are in the Southeastern United States. In this class Pandra Williams will help you understand how you can support our native butterflies and bees personally, in your garden.   Learn how to identify and support three types of gentle native bees.   Learn about the five classes of butterflies and what you need to keep them coming back to your garden.  There will be a hand’s on project; the class will build a mason bee house together.
