Mason Bee Workshop - March 2nd, 2024 - Columbia Land Trust
Boost your garden's pollination power by bringing home a mason bee colony — and the knowledge needed to care for it.

Columbia Land Trust is excited to announce our annual Mason Bee Workshop, taking place Saturday, March 2nd, 2024. Join us at Clark College in Vancouver, Washington for a presentation by Land Trust Board Member Janet Gifford on best practices for mason bee care, followed by the collection of your own mason bee starter colony! All participants will walk away with information on how to care for their colony and where to source necessary supplies. One lucky winner from each session will be randomly selected to win a custom mason bee house, hand-crafted by Land Trust Board Member Tim Spofford! 

Sign up for one of two in-person sessions:

Space is limited, so if you’re not able to RSVP for one of our sessions you can email to be added to a waitlist. If space opens up, we will email you in the order your waitlist request was received. 

If you’re not able to join us for any of the sessions, we’ve provided below a list of reputable sources for purchasing mason bees, plus a recorded webinar on hosting mason bees presented by Janet Gifford in 2021.
