Bee workshop in Black Creek

You’ve heard about the marvellous little creature called the mason bee, one of nature’s great pollinators.

AL MORTON is a big fan of mason bees.

You’ve heard about the marvellous little creature called the mason bee, one of nature’s great pollinators.

Now is your chance to spend a day learning about the many facets of its life and behaviour, as well as how you can make the mason bee a part of your own world.
People of all ages are welcome to this two-part workshop at the Black Creek Community Centre this Saturday that will begin with an introduction to the bee and nesting tube creation; the afternoon portion of the workshop will focus on harvesting, cleaning and winter storage.

Instructor Al Morton will return to teach this class.

Morton will bring filled tubes and nesting boxes as well as equipment for cleaning. If you wish to bring some of your own tubes, you are welcome to do so; please bring a maximum of four tubes.

For more information, stop by the BCCA’s office or call 250-337-5190.
