Description

Did you know there are 1100 species of native bees in New Mexico?  Come learn about these wondrous pollinators from Lu Lu Sage.  Lu Lu will help you learn to “see these bees.” She’ll talk about the life cycle of these bees and the foraging plants they visit.  She’ll share some simple ways that you can attract bees into your yard by providing healthy foraging plants and habitat.  Lu Lu will also conduct a workshop on how to construct and maintain cavity nesting brood boxes and reed bundles.  She will share best practices to hang these boxes and how to keep future generations of bees healthy and viable.  Handouts will be provided.
