Simple Service: Bee Bath

Simple Service: Bee Bath

Service Project: Celebrate National Pollinator Week! Creating a bee bath is one way to make your garden pollinator friendly!

Prep time: 15 min

Cost:$10-$15

Duration: 1 hour

Lesson(s) learned: I can help create a safe place for bees to access water. Which is very important! A single bee tends to at least 2,000 flowers daily, with their tiny wings beating 10,000 times per minute, carrying pollen, and dramatically assisting our food supply. Bees use water to dissolve crystallized honey, to dilute honey when producing larval food, for evaporation cooling during warm weather, and for a cool drink on a hot day. Pollinator Week celebrates the valuable ecosystem services provided by bees, birds, butterflies, bats and beetles. It is a move forward in helping the declining pollinator population.

Event Recap: Friends of Hendricks Park and Happy Birthday LHC!

Today we had a community event with the Friends of Hendricks Park. Kids were hard workers as they helped weed and mulch.

While they were working, someone asked me how long Little Hands Can has been around. That question led to me realizing that it was our two year anniversary! Happy Birthday Little Hands Can! What's been your favorite activity or program this year? Let us know in the comments!
