Bees to meet you

Want to bring nature home to your backyard? I feel like I am channeling Doug Tallamy here.

By that, I don’t mean just the pretty plants. I mean all the hard-working pollinators like butterflies, bats, beetles, birds and of course, the bees, who make it all happen. We cannot live without them.

Last night, at Dr. Dan Duran’s 5B’s presentation, it was very clear to us why we have to stop using weed killers and other chemicals. Also, we have to stop raking up all the old leaves that the pollinators need. And we should leave some bare dirt patches for the bees to make a home. Now that was easy…

And if we plant amazing Serviceberry trees, buttonbush plants, and some milkweed for the Monarch butterflies, then we are truly amazing, too.

Thank you to Dr. Dan Duran for his expertise and for coming out on a school night– and to Drexel University and the Academy of Natural Sciences.

Looking forward to Honey Bee Buzz on Tuesday, April 28, 6:30PM…

Audubon PA, Wayne Art Center, Radnor Bird Town, Radnor Memorial Library, Radnor Middle School, Radnor Conservancy and Jenkins Arboretum have been very busy presenting special events just for you since March 29 and it won’t end until May 9, 2015.

Here are the pictures from last Friday night, when Batman and Paul Bunyan (Jackson Miller and Ty Miller, respectively) visited Radnor Memorial Library for the bird and bat house-building workshop. It was a lot of fun for the grown-ups, but mostly for the children who got to build stuff and then run around the Winsor Room with Batman and Mr. Bunyan!

Visit the website for the 5 B’s right here:
