This Earth Day, the Living Prairie Museum is buzzing.

The Ness Avenue tall grass prairie preserve is teaming up with Bee Better Manitoba for the launch of a new website to help conserve bees and other pollinators.

The beebettermb.ca site gives Winnipeggers useful tips to create healthy habitats for bees, including information about native plants, garden designs, and more.
