Bug Bungalows | In-person class

October 21, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Did you know insects have homes too? They are the laborers that make our garden thrive year long. Without these beautiful and beneficial bugs, our gardens wouldn’t be the same. “Bug Hotels” have become very popular to help make sure our six-legged friends have a safe place to live while they pollinate, hunt, and work in the garden.

In this class, you will make your own bug bungalow to take home. All materials will be provided except gloves.

Capacity is limited, so reserve your spot today!

Additional Information: This class will take place in person at the Huntsville Botanical Garden, and all class attendees are expected to adhere to the Garden’s health and safety guidelines. Maximum capacity for this class is 10 attendees, plus the instructor. Attendees will enter the Guest Center and continue through the doors into the Garden to meet on the patio outside. The majority of this class will take place outdoors, but in case of inclement weather, the class will be moved inside. All attendees will be required to wear a face mask or covering for the duration of the class, both indoors and outdoors, and appropriate social distancing of at least 6 feet will be practiced whenever possible. Please contact with questions about the Garden’s health and safety guidelines.

Members: $40
Non-Members: $65
