Montana State University is hosting the Honey Bee Research Site and Pollinator Garden volunteer days from 1 to 5 p.m. Friday, May 18, and from 8 to 11 a.m. Friday, June 15. The volunteer events will be held at the MSU Horticulture Farm located at 2730 West Garfield Street in Bozeman, near the Bozeman Agricultural Research and Teaching Farm, or BART.
Volunteers from the campus and Gallatin Valley communities are invited to help weed, plant and complete additional maintenance activities for the university garden, which serves as a field laboratory and community outreach and integration center for pollinator health. This site features bee-friendly forage and habitat, a pavilion, an equipment shed that houses educational and beekeeping materials, and honey bee colonies.
Participants should bring water, sun hats, gardening tools and watering cans. Parking is available near the Bob Miller Livestock Pavilion, on the grounds of BART.
