Mason Bee Lecture

Learn about Mason Bees at a free lecture by Orchard Mason Beekeeper Rick Mercier at the U.P. Library, in the U.P. Civic Building at 3609 Market Place West, First Floor, on Saturday, Feb. 22, from noon to 2 p.m.

Many times more effective than honey bees, Blue Orchard Mason Bees are also totally nonaggressive. They are easy to care for and are our very own Pacific Northwest native bee. These are the same bees used to pollinate the Curran Orchard and have proven to substantially increase the crop yield.

Parks Appreciation Day

In honor of Earth Day, Arbor Day and National Parks Week, the City of University Place will hold its annual Parks Appreciation Day on Saturday, April 25 from 9 a.m. to noon. This marks the 19th year that U.P. residents have brought their shovels, rakes, gloves and pruners to a U.P. park to clean and beautify the public space in anticipation of the warm months ahead.

This year’s event will take place at Paradise Pond Park, 3124 67th Avenue West where we'll be spreading wood chips on the trails and performing trail maintenance.
