This week I visited the Calvert Rec Center Pollinator Garden. Two Nebraska Extension Lancaster County Master Gardeners, Nance and Mary, planted and maintain this garden as a volunteer project. They have planted many native plants that are labeled for the public to view. They have installed a bee water station and have spent hours weeding this impressive garden site. Thank you for hard work and dedication to pollinators!
Today the Cherry Creek Pollinator Habitat hosted a Master Gardener Lunch & Learn. Master Gardeners brought their lunch, toured the habitat and learn more about our bee structures and plant selection for pollinators. They constructed a solitary bee nest to place in their home landscape next year from recycled and repurposed items. Master Gardeners also made nature journals and spent time in the pollinator habitat observing nature. The Cherry Creek Habitat is the perfect place to lunch and learn.
