The Pollinator Project

The Pollinator Project at the Lucas County Fairgrounds in Maumee began as a grant from The Ohio State University and is run through its Lucas County extension. It is geared toward raising awareness about the role bees play in nature. Groups of children from the Lucas County 4-H and a local Perrysburg Junior Girl Scout Troop turned out on Sunday, May 19, 2013, to help build an insect sanctuary. The structure will act as a place for various insects, including Mason and other types of bees, to lay their eggs and inhabit. CLICK ANY PHOTO TO ENLARGE AND START SLIDESHOW.
