A look at the life of bees native to the United States is at the Marshall Public Library.

A look at the life of bees native to the United States is at the Marshall Public Library.

The new display on native bees features colorful posters, pictures, interactive fact cards and handouts to show the diversity of native bees, the crucial components of their habitats, how bees affect our lives, and the threats these insects are facing globally. It will also highlight local organizations that are working together on projects that help support bees in the Gem State. The library has also selected specific bee-related books that can be checked out.

"We especially encourage fourth-grade teachers to come get pollinator education materials for their classrooms," said Maria Pacioretty, Wildlife Habitat Biologist with the Idaho Department of Fish and Game. "The whole community can get involved and help protect these amazing insects, even in their own backyard."

The display is a collaboration between the Idaho Department of Fish and Game and the Caribou-Targhee National Forest.

The display can be found on the first floor of the library in the Storytime Room until the first week of December.
