The Bee Hotel

The Bee Hotel (Gardens at Lake Merritt) With a design by Oakland City Carpenter, Troy Bally, inspired by Paris’s own bee hotel, our Hotel “opened” Earth Day 2013. Native bees dwell in wood and holes bored into the Hotel’s blocks offer the insects shelter to nest and lay their eggs. Native bees, their behaviors and the challenges they face differ greatly from those of hive-dwelling honey bees and bumblebees. All bees however are unsurpassed as Pollinators– so saving as many as possible requires knowing that all bees are not created equal.
