Did you know that Yukon has over 90 species of bees! You are invited to a Work Bee to contribute to native bee habitat and monitoring in Yukon.


This is a community project where you can contribute to a citizen science initiative in Yukon while gaining experience in the woodshop.


At the Work Bee, you will:



  • Learn about native Yukon bees and how they pollinate both wild and domestic plants;

  • Help to build bee houses that will be used in a citizen-based monitoring project conducted by Maria Leung;

  • Go home with the experience and plans to build your very own bee house;

  • Gain experience with a few of the tools in YuKonstruct’s woodshop.


The aim is to construct at least thirty bee houses for solitary cavity nesting bees during the Work Bee.


Refreshments provided!
