Insect Hotel (Vancouver)
Did you read this article in the CBC online News this summer:
Vancouver buzzing about new insect hotel
Old telephone booth now used to attract butterflies, birds and bees
Hartley Rosen, executive director of the Environmental Youth Alliance, and Nathan Lee helped build an insect hotel out of an old telephone booth. The new hotel is part of a trail of green spaces to encourage more travel and pollination. There are 12 cedar boxes filled with various materials, like maple logs, known to attract bees found inside.
The insect hotel at Oak Meadows Park is part of a 1,500-square-foot pollinator garden on West 37th Avenue between Oak and Willow streets
