Pollinator Houses by Girl Scout Troop 7775

Thank you, once again, to Girl Scout Troop 7775 for building and installing pollinator houses in the Skyview Harmony Garden. Many pollinators, like Orchard Mason Bees, don't make hives and homes and so they need a protected place to seek shelter. They prefer narrow openings, such as the hollows of reeds, for hiding out. So our local troop built these beautiful structures as a way of inviting beneficial pollinators into our school garden! The troop also released a group of ladybugs into the garden to help us fend off aphids. Thanks friends! See you in the garden!
