Powerful Pollinators

*This class has been CANCELED*

Birds, bees, butterflies, bats and beetles -- what do they all have in common? All of these creatures are powerful pollinators and without them wildflowers wouldn't bloom and fruits and veggies wouldn't find their way from our farms to our tables. During this camp, you will learn all about the powerful interactions between pollinators and plants. Taste some 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.

What To Bring:

Pack a backpack with snack, lunch, reusable water bottle, rain jacket, warm layer, sunscreen, hat, and sunglasses. Please remember to label everything. Wear appropriate clothing and sturdy, closed-toed shoes - no open-toe sandals!

How To Get There:

Please walk, bike, bus, or carpool to ACES at Hallam Lake whenever possible! Parking is extremely limited and alternate transportation is fun and saves the planet.

BIKE BOARD CHALLENGE: In the summer, every time you come to Hallam Lake in something other than your own car you will earn a sticker to place on our Bike Board. Bike Board participants are entered to win great prizes all summer long including local gift certificates, bike accessories, ACES classes, reusable bags, and more. 

PARKING LOT: Limited parking is available for Hallam Lake visitors only. Please park efficiently. Drop-off overflow parking for Hallam Lake programs is available in the West End (2 hour free parking) with an easy walk down the stairs to the center. We are an IDLE FREE community.
