Ages: All

Help bring more pollinators to our community this summer by learning about their important role when it comes to growing fruits, vegetables, flowers and supporting a healthy ecosystem. Whether you have a yard or not, you’ll get a chance to participate in crafts and plant flowers that attract pollinators. Pick up your free pollinator event kit at our park pop-up and go on an optional guided pollinator park tour. The next day, join Master Gardener Priscilla Wells Robinson virtually as she leads you through age appropriate crafts and hands-on activities to teach you about the wonderful world of pollinators.

Pre-registration is required. When you register, choose one of the two pickup locations and times, and the appropriate age group for your child. A Zoom link for the May 16 virtual programming will be provided following registration.
