Bee Sanctuary

Bee log hotel

The Friends of Royal Park, Parkville have submitted a proposal for a Bee Sanctuary, designed by Roch Desmier de Chenon, to the Melbourne City Council.  This is to attract native bees and would be located in the Australian Native Garden where the emphasis is on an extended floral display with associated provision of nectar. In the interim a simple bee log ’hotel’ has been erected (see photo).
