Pollinator Hotels

The Fernald Club supports local pollinators through research & projects to create and protect pollinator habitat. The Fernald Club was awarded $3000 from the University of Massachusetts Sustainability Fund to build "Pollinator Hotels" on the Amherst campus.

Pollinator hotels are structures in which pollinators can nest in.

Check out our "Pollinator Hotels" project in the UMass Amherst Permaculture Gardens, built with the cooperation of UMass Auxiliary Services. We currently have hotels in the Franklin and Berkshire gardens.
