What’s the Buzz?
During the month of March we will be giving away free boxes of Mason Bee Cocoons to purchasers of any Mason Bee supplies at the Nature Store. Think outside the hive! Invite a colony of these gentle, hive-less, solitary bees to nest in your backyard. You’ll have a bumper crop of fruit from your fruit trees and berry bushes. Each mason bee does the work of up to 100 honey bees as they busily get to work in your yard in early spring. Read our information sheet for the details then hurry in to the Nature Store, as our cocoons will be ready to hatch adult bees this month!
Annual Optics Fair
The Nature Store is holding our free annual Spring Optics Fair on April 1. We’ve invited all our optics vendors plus we’ll have a digiscoping workshop outdoors with our Educational Birds posing for the pictures. Get the details in our calendar.
Each of our colorful charge card-style Gift Cards bears the image of a Yellow Warbler photographed by Jim Cruce. These handy cards are available in any denomination and never expire. They can also be recharged at any time to add additional value (recycle!, reuse!).
Our staff is happy to issue these cards in person or over the phone. We can mail them directly to your recipient, enclosed in one of our beautiful Bruce Horsfall greeting cards, making gift giving easy!
