Naturescaping to host Mason bee class


Naturescaping is inviting the gardening community to join what has become known as the “annual Mason Bee experience.”

“Did you know Mason Bees are one of about 4,000 native North American bee [species], without which most of our fruits and vegetables would not produce?” a release by Naturescaping states. 

The class will showcase how easy it is to attract and maintain these important pollinators in one’s yard. Attendees will also learn about the bees and then get hands-on experience as Naturescaping staff will be cleaning cocoons for their plant sale in the spring.

In exchange with the help on cleaning cocoons, Naturescaping will gift attendees with their very own bee cocoons.

The class will take place from 10 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Nov. 18, at the CASEE Center, Building B, Room 205, 11104 NE 149th St.

The class will be free for Naturescaping members and $15 for non-members. Naturescaping memberships cost $25 per year and $15 for seniors for the year.
