Powerful Pollinators

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. Find out why these creatures have such a special relationship with the plants they pollinate. Taste some local honey and observe honey bees in their hives. Watch bees dance, listen to them buzz, smell flowers, roll beeswax candles and learn about the important connections between pollinators and our food. Field trips, guest appearances and plenty of exploration will add zest to this exciting week of science.
