Harvesting, Cleaning & Preparing Cocoons for Winter Storage
Workshop Offered October 5
Bees and other pollinators are in decline due to loss of natural habitats, improper pesticide use, and the spread of invasive plants. Through our Bee Buddies program, we offer a mason bee nest box placement program and mason bee care information. At this two hour training, you will get hands-on experience with the process of harvesting, cleaning, and preparing mason bee cocoons for optimal winter storage.
The Benton Soil and Water District is partnering with City of Corvallis Parks & Recreation to sponsor a workshop on October 5, 2017 from 11 am to 1 pm at Tunison Community Room to inform residents interested in supporting mason bees on how to properly care for these gentle, native, super pollinators. The October 10 workshop has been cancelled.
Registration: REQUIRED; cost: $10
