Help a Bee
Bees are pollinators and essential to our ecosystem. The most helpful way to support all bees is by providing sustainable food and water sources, as well as habitat. At Macon Creek, we focus on nurturing a diversity of native plants that provide nectar and pollen, and bloom throughout the year. We are fortunate to have a year-round running creek and pond for the bees’ hydration. Our habitat for native bees includes ample bare patches of soil, fallen logs and dead trees.
While Honeybees are not native to North America, we keep some healthy hives and enjoy the teaching and learning experience they provide. On good years when the bees have enough, we are grateful to process the excess honey and wax.
