Spring is just a few weeks away and the Inspiration Garden in Coquitlam's Town Centre Park is kicking off the season with the Release of the mason bees.

Pasquale Gnocato, an Inspiration Garden volunteer and a local expert on mason bees, will be releasing the Inspiration Garden bees into the garden.

Mason bees are vital pollinators for food and fruit crops, and even residential gardens. Mason bees don't produce honey, they only live to pollinate; they do not sting and are easy to keep in your own yard.

The Release of the Bees runs from 10 a.m. to noon March 12 at the Inspiration Garden, located in the southeast corner of Town Centre Park.

If you wish to attend, register online at www.coquitlam.ca/inspirationgarden or by phoning 604-927-4386.

Also at the Inspiration Garden:

FOR THE BIRDS

On March 19, the garden will host the plant propagator from Linnaea Nursery, a wholesale native plant nursery based in Langley.

The guest will share information on the best plants for growing in your backyard and how to attract birds with native plantings.

Attracting Birds and Wildlife with Native Plants runs from 10 to 11 a.m., weather permitting (location may be changed in inclement weather).

You must register by visiting www.coquitlam.ca/inspirationgarden or by phoning 604-927-4386.

The City of Coquitlam's Inspiration Garden is an educational, teaching garden on the corner of Pipeline Road and Guildford Way in Town Centre Park and serves the Tri-Cities. The Inspiration Garden runs workshops, seminars and hosts special events throughout the growing season from March through October.
