Maplewood Nature Center
Nesting habitat is a critical yet often overlooked factor impacting native bee populations. This popular workshop lead by Sarah Foltz Jordan (Senior Pollinator Conservation Specialist with The Xerces Society) and Colleen Satyshur (University of MN) will provide practical approaches to create and manage nesting and overwintering habitat features for bees, including dead wood, stems, brush, rock piles, bare ground, leaf litter, and more. Approaches are relevant to gardeners, landscapers, natural resource professionals, and anyone interested in taking the next step in supporting pollinators. After the classroom activities we will go outside to search for active nests of stem-nesting bees!
