Pollinators, Plants, and People: Partnerships for Life

Wednesday, February 21, 2018
1:00 pm – 2:30 pm

Sensory Garden


Description: Plants and pollinators are specially designed for one another. Zoom in to find out how flowers fit pollinator bodies, and offer pollinators the materials they need to survive. In the Honey House you will explore the gifts from the hive and find out what plants each gift was made from. In the exhibit gallery find out how much pollen a bee can carry. People can help pollinators out by planting pollinator friendly plants that will provide a food source for pollinators all summer long. Plant your pollinator friendly plant today and tend it until you can plant in your garden this Spring.
