Enjoy an interactive presentation covering the life cycle of this magnificent Solitary Bee – an important early spring backyard pollinator. Jim Ullrich, CEO of Knox Cellar Orchard Mason Bees, and former owner of Wild Birds Unltd. in Gig Harbor, will have actual cocoons to show while discussing how to set up a housing area. Bees and houses will be available to take home at a nominal cost. This is a great program for families to introduce your children and grandchildren to this friendly, gregarious, non-stinging pollinating bee.
