Self Guided Tour Station 6a: Bee Garden


This section was designed to support populations of the many native bee species found in Alameda County.  This garden also attracts other pollinators such as hummingbirds and butterflies.

Pollinator Garden Features:

  • Plants were selected so that something is blooming year-round to ensure a continuous source of pollen and nectar for the bees.
  • Areas of bare soil (no mulch) are present. 70% of native bees are ground-nesting!
  • Nesting blocks are for the 30% of bees that are cavity-nesting.
