Pollinator Tour 

Ontario Tech is opening its doors to community members and students to showcase the exciting expansion to our Pollinator Project. This #GoGreenStayBlue initiative enables the bee populations to recover after a rapid decline in the last several years due to habitat loss and pesticide use. The tour will feature three hydro-seeded wildflower gardens, our 40 honey-producing hives maintained by Royal Meadows Farms, and our solitary bee hotels, made of recycled material. Our expert apiarists will be on site to give a Beekeeping 101 talk, answer questions, and allow you to look at our hive window box. Come prepared with all of the bee questions you may have and maybe some cash for sweet Ontario Tech wildflower honey produced on campus or infused honey made by Royal Meadows! 'Bee-aware' if you have bee allergies, as we will be close to bee hives during this tour!

This event is Thursday, October 3 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Ontario Tech Office of Campus Infrastructure and Sustainability office (285 Britannia Avenue West, Oshawa, Ontario).
