Caring for Mason Bee Cocoons

January 1, 1970 @ 12:00 am PST

A true naturalist, Hugh Laughlin’s curiosity and admiration for the Mason Bee led him to become a local expert on this highly efficient spring pollinator that is so important to our agricultural crops. Hugh will instruct members in caring for hibernating mason bees and we will be opening the boxes, removing the bees, and cleaning the cocoons.

Explorer Day Etiquette:

  • Be prepared to HAVE FUN!
  • Pre-registration with your Club Leader is required for most Explorer Days (Friends are welcome if space permits).
  • Please arrive 5-10 minutes before the scheduled start time to ensure enough time for passport stamping and organization. Starting times are firm, and Leaders cannot wait for late-comers!
  • Please stay with the Leader and let them know if you are leaving early.
  • Children must always be accompanied by an adult guardian, who is responsible for their behaviour. Children consistently disrupting the experience of others may be asked to leave.
  • Bring appropriate weather gear, sunscreen, snacks, water, and other useful tools like binoculars, sketch books, cameras, and magnifying glasses.
