February 2023:  Winter Respite in Progress    

Insects and other pollinators are resting, now!    The human folks of BFW are staying warm, indoors and planning Summer 2023 Events!    Have questions?  write to us at ""

Please check back, for Spring and Summer 2023 Updates

And thanks for leaving the leaves, as well as standing stems, until early May, so that stem-nesting nesting insect larvae may hatch and grow!

Ongoing Summer 2022 ; CHECK BACK in MAY for 2023 Updates! 

Join us most Wednesdays, between 4 - 6 pm, @the Spruces Pollinator Plantings by the pond.   Look for pollinators amongst the lovely-scented and colorful blossoms!  Enjoy the fruits of five seasons of volunteer stewardship in this local haven for bees, birds and butterflies.  Learn how you too can host a pollinator paradise!   Heavy rain and/or lightening cancels. Thru Sept 14, 2022.  Have questions?  Write to us at:

About Bee Friendly Williamstown

We are local folks promoting healthy garden habitats for all  bees -- including our many native bees, as well as birds, butterflies and other creatures, too!   We advocate reducing or preferably entirely eliminating the use of pesticides and herbicides, in order to support pollinators as well as to maintain healthy land and water for humans, too!
