Join UNL students in designing and building bumble bee domiciles. These domiciles can be placed in the landscape to attract bumble bee queens looking for a summertime home. Bumble bees are one of the most important native pollinators of fruit and vegetable gardens and are also important pollinators of native plants. In recent years, many bumble bee species have declined in population. Providing man-made nest boxes is a way to help bumble bee populations.
Join us at Finke Gardens on April 9th to make a bumble bee home of your own and learn about these important pollinators.
When: Monday, April 9, 3:30 pm
Where: at Finke Gardens & Nursery, 500 North 66th Street, Lincoln NE
Suggested audience: Ages 8 and up with adult supervision
Limited spots are available.
