We have been working on initiatives for the past 7 years and are leaders in conservation programs and projects across Vancouver.
Each year we raise mason bee cocoons at our Insect Hotel, a large eco-converted telephone booth located at Oak Meadows Park. We share the cocoons and give away mason bee houses with the community.
We host about 10 workshops each year at schools and community centers in the spring when mason bees are hatching and then in the fall when their cocoons are brought in to be cleaned. Youth love this opportunity to connect with nature in their own backyards, and become stewards themselves with a new mason bee house to look after! We have photo permission to use this photo for our organization, so feel free to post! “
