These bees range in size from as small as a cookie crumb to as large as a half dollar. They come in a rainbow of colors and designs as well.

Bee Hotel Workshop: Build homes for our native buzzing friends!
Many of our native Missouri bee species are actually solitary bees. Many of these bees make their homes in small wooden holes, like those in old tree logs or perennial plant stalks. We can help bees nest in more urbanized environments by providing bee hotels for them! In return they will help your garden stay healthy and increase your vegetable/fruit yields. Come make one of these homes with us at this free workshop!
