July 3rd - Teen Craft: Bee Hotels

Did you know that there are some bees who spend their life without a hive? Solitary bees are bees that keep to themselves, drinking nectar and collecting pollen. Without a hive, these bees live in places like the ground, but these places are constantly under threat. Because of this, "Bee Hotels" were created. Bee Hotels are human-made 'hives' made completely out of recycled materials that solitary bees will use as homes!
