The Art of Powerful Pollinators
Birds, bees, butterflies, bats and beetles—what do they all have in common? All of these creatures are powerful pollinators. Without them, wildflowers wouldn't bloom, and fruits and veggies wouldn't find their way from our farms to our tables. Find out why these creatures have such a special relationship with the plants they pollinate. Taste local honey and observe honey bees in their hives. Watch bees dance, listen to them buzz, smell flowers, and learn about the important connections between pollinators and our food through a variety of art projects. Field trips, guest appearances and plenty of exploration will add zest to this exciting week of science and art!
