Helping Insects Build Their Homes, with Dragons Wynd

September 9, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Did you know that insect homes are diverse and fascinating? For instance, some bees nest horizontally, others vertically, in dead plant stems. Some make their nests in the soil, others prefer wood. Give insects—especially pollinators—a helping hand as they prepare for winter! We’ll learn how to welcome insects and boost their populations by providing them with good nesting materials, including one type of home which we’ll build during this hands-on workshop. Register here.
