Attracting beneficial insects to your schoolyard is great but having them stay in your schoolyard is even better! Using natural materials (branches, twigs, and moss), create a mansion of crevices perfect for boarders that will earn their keep. Melissa Palmer briefs you on the care and handling of your design along with providing you with all the necessary information to welcome your guests to your school and how to use your new mansion with your students. If you build it, the beneficials will come. Certificates of completion and 3 Act 48 credits will be provided.
