Habitats for Wild Bees

Recommended Posts

A group of Girl Scouts is building habitats for wild bees (i.e., not "honey bees").

This is a very interesting project because it addresses a significant, but often overlooked, aspect of the declining pollinator problem: we often focus on honey bee populations, but forget that there are a lot of bee species, and many of these species are declining in lock-step with the domesticated honey bee populations.

I think that many Boy Scouts could look into this as a possible Hornaday project or Eagle project...a good project idea is a good project idea!
