Learn about how important mason bees are to our ecosystem and how you can protect our native pollinators by hosting them in your own backyard. Olivia Shangrow is the biologist for Rent Mason Bees. You'll learn about the lifecycle of a solitary bee and how to host mason bees and leafcutter bees in your backyard. She will share information about their role in the agricultural industry, the importance of wild bees in our ecosystems, and how you can have a direct impact on the production of food that ends up in our grocery stores.
