    Description:

    In 2020, Bee Palooza goes virtual...

    Over the next few months we will be working on what we're calling Virtual Bee Palooza. Instead of hosting a large event at the MSU Gardens in East Lansing in June, we will be posting a set of curated materials and suggested activities that people will be able to explore on their own from wherever they may be.

    The Bee Hotel will still remain in the MSU Horticulture Gardens for people to visit, but we hope that this new format will inspire people all over the State of Michigan (and bee-yond!) to consider how they can become better pollinator stewards in their own communities.
