Friends of Pollinators: Build Your Own Bee Hotel!

Town Hall
Help our Windsor pollinators by building your very own Bee Hotel. For kids of all ages! Bring your own waterproof container, preferably a half-gallon milk carton (wax or plastic). We’ll provide the rest. You’ll go home with a Bee Hotel and we’ll suggest the best places to locate it in your garden. PLEASE NOTE: We need small wood blocks that we’ll be drilling holes in before fitting them inside the milk cartons. If you're willing to donate these (or if you have any questions), please call or email Val Kohn: 684-1731, valckohn@verizon.net.

It's often said that bees are responsible for one out of every three bites of food we eat. Such pollinators are key to the health of our environment, and thus ourselves. Please consider joining our small community in its yearlong effort to preserve and protect Windsor's pollinators!

Here's what Cornell Lab of Ornithology says about the Northern Cardinal: "The male Northern Cardinal is perhaps responsible for getting more people to open up a field guide than any other bird......Even the brown females sport a sharp crest and warm red accents. Cardinals don’t migrate and they don’t molt into a dull plumage, so they’re still breathtaking in winter’s snowy backyards."

The tradition of Valentine's Day is thought to have originated from a Roman festival called Lupercalia, which took place in mid-February, the official start of their spring. Apparently, as part of the celebrations, boys drew names of girls from a box.

These are the tracks of a Ruffed Grouse (photo by Patty Crane). The grouse’s habit of burying itself in soft snow to roost can lead to surprising encounters for snowshoers or skiers when the birds erupt from beneath the surface.
