As a homeowner and a parent involved with my children's elementary school, what can I do to help? We don't use pesticides at our home, and have installed some bee-friendly plants at home and at the school. My biggest hurdle at the school is an unfounded fear of bees. I understand that from people who are allergic, but the teachers and parents tend to think that bees are dangerous. Any good resources out there for teaching about pollinators to elementary age kids (and their parents!)? I think I also need to learn more about mason bees. It sounds like installing a mason bee house in my yard might help? I do not have the time to actually 'keep bees' though. Would a mason bee house at the school be appropriate?
