The bee population is under threat
Bonython Park is a popular place for families because of its adventure playspace and BBQ facilities. But did you know that it is also where you can find the native bee BNB project? Not far from the adventure playspace is the magic forest, and within the magic forest is a native bee hotel!



The native bee hotel, or BNB, was built in 2018 to celebrate World Bee Day. It is made out of wood, bamboo and clay, and provides different types of nesting sites for native bees along the River Torrens. Specific native flowering plants have also been grown as food for the native bees.



The aim of the project is to attract native bees to the park. There are approximately 200 species of native bees living in the Adelaide region. Unfortunately, the bee population around the world is under threat and therefore it is an important time to increase the awareness of the community of the crucial role played by native bees in the pollination process.
