On Saturday, June 26, Girl Scouts in Grand Junction, Colorado Springs, and Longmont gathered to build their own bee hotels and learn other ways to protect the habitats of Colorado’s most prodigious pollinators: solitary bees!
Part of GSCO’s new Gardening Patch Program, building bee hotels is a fun and creative way to spend time outside and take action to benefit wildlife. If you’d like to build your own bee hotel, check out this video:
GSCO’s next outdoor meet up will be in July. Come join us and other Girl Scouts in creating some Outdoor Art masterpieces. Craft a windchime to make music using the wind, go on a photographic scavenger hunt, and/or paint using nature as your inspiration. Girl Scouts working on their Outdoor Art badge of any level can apply these activities towards earning their badge!
