3/22/21 — Mason Bees Released to Strengthen Ecosystem

The Bainbridge Island Metro Park & Recreation District is partnering with Rent Mason Bees to help pollinate plants within our parks to help create a healthier ecosystem. We are releasing 1,600 mason bees near our historical orchards in Williams Olson Park, Blakely Harbor Park meadow, Hilltop meadow, and Moritani Nature Preserve to help revive and strengthen our orchards and surrounding habitat.

About Mason Bees: Blue Orchard Mason Bees DO NOT STING and are native to the Pacific Northwest. They are super pollinators and are vital to our food production and ecosystem. They belly-flop onto flowers and collect pollen all over their bodies, which enables them to pollinate 95% of the flowers they land on, and they can visit up to 2,000 blossoms a day.

To learn how you can help, rent your own solitary bees, or learn more about our partnering company, visit Rent Mason Bees’ website here.
