Did you hear about how Holland is transforming bus stops into bee habitats? They've added little bee havens to the tops of 300 bus stop awnings and I can't even. This is the best, cutest idea I've heard about in forever. As our bee populations dwindle, we need to go about making the world a much more bee-friendly place. Wow, did you ever think we'd need those words, in that order?
You can do similar things in your yard. This week we are making a bee hotel (complete with a saloon sign per a scavenger hunt we're doing), and you can always add more food sources and bee-friendly plants to the yard. Many people grow gardens specifically targeting bees and I think that's fabulous.
How do you help improve the lives of bees or promote bee welfare in your neighborhood? Share your ideas in the chat!
