Follow the story of the construction of a bee hotel! Using donated materials from local residents, Cornell Cooperative Extension in Schuyler County is building an educational pollinator hotel in their garden. The hotel will be located in a teaching garden open to the public, where members of the community can pass by and grab a flyer or read about the bees.
To celebrate National Pollinator Week 2017, Crown Bees featured the work of researchers that are studying native bees across the country. Many of the researchers sourced nesting materials or hole-nesting bee cocoons from Crown Bees.
Dr. Jason Graham is the lead researcher developing conservation for the endangered Hawaiian yellow-faced bees in the Plant and Environmental Protection Sciences Department at the University of Hawaii at Mānoa.

Heather Harvey started Bees Gone Wild in West Lafayette, Indiana to encourage people to adopt native bees into their gardens, but she’s discovering that most people need basic information about pollination and the role bees play in producing our food before they can even begin to consider setting up a wild bee nest.
