Asheville Bee City USA

Bee City

Hello from the Garden!

Did you know that Asheville is a designated Bee City USA?

In 2012, Asheville became the first Bee City USA.

 Estes Elementary is working hard to help create sustainable pollinator habitats for the thousands of bee species in our area. Native plants in our educational garden and Monarch garden feed many species of butterflies, bees, bats, birds and beetles. Beautiful right? 
This winter, 3rd Grades will build homes for mining and mason bees. We need your help! Please donate empty paper towel rolls. 
Thank you for all your help making science a hands on experience! Kimberly Lanzarotta, Garden Teacher/AmeriCorps Member
