Pollinator Palooza

Why is pollination important for the garden, and what wildlife and bugs make it possible? Learn about all the different types of pollinators that are found in the garden, including bees, butterflies, birds, worms, and bats. We will discuss how pollinators are important for growing food and the types of plants that best attract pollinators. Participants will get to examine mason bee homes and a full beekeeping suit. Everyone will get to take home seeds to plant and attract pollinators at home.
