"Not only do I love the bee cottage I bought from them, I commissioned them to prepare a presentation for me to present to a group in my hometown. The presentation included beautiful slides and a curriculum. I look forward to working with them in the future. They are great to work with!" - Spriggly's Customer, North Texas
"Spriggly's Beescaping prepared an excellent presentation to share with two Haywood Art Camp classes this summer. Not only did the kids learn about pollinators and native bee species, but they were able to decorate and take home bee houses to help pollinators in their own backyards. Spriggly's is wonderful to work with - I couldn't recommend them more highly!" - The Haywood Arts Council
Workshop Titles and Pricing
In this workshop, European honey bees take a backseat to the almost 4,000 species of bees native to North America. Learn about the lives of these pollination machines through an exploration of common species and the habitat each require for nesting and survival.
Explore bees, beetles, butterflies, flies, wasps, and ants, along with certain bats and birds that assist in pollination. Some also provide seed carrying and distribution, which is essential to our environment. Finally, explore common garden pests and the native predators that are better than pesticides.
From caterpillar to cocoon, and from migration to motherhood, delve into the complex life and life-cycles of butterflies. Many species of our native butterflies even have preferred host plants that they use to lay their young. Discover more about these beautiful pollinators and how you can support them.
Creating a pollinator garden requires more than just planting flowers, although those are a great start! Learn how to create a pollinator garden that provides forage and habitat year round for a variety of pollinators, along with other beneficial insects and animals.
Farms, schools, businesses, and individuals can take part in saving and restoring habitat that supports populations of struggling beneficial insects and animals. Gain an understanding of the many problems facing our native wildlife and what you can do to help.
