National Pollinator Week

 

Bat Day!

11am – 12pm
Pollinator Garden
Free with paid parking

We’re excited about our pollinator friends and you should be too! Join us Monday through Friday, June 17th-21st, to help us celebrate the creatures that are needed for the reproduction of 90% of flowering plants and 1 out of 3 bites of food we take each day. Pollinators are all part of the intricate biological web that helps to support diversity in our ecosystem and sustains our quality of life.

You’re going to be super excited to know that we’re ending our week with our bat friends!  Sharon and Dan Peterson have been trained by Bat Conservation International in the conservation of bats…which all began with a Girl Scout project!  They have been promoting bat education through their presentations since 1996 with the goal to teach and inform the audience about the many benefits of this misunderstood and feared creature.

Join us each day this week!  Each day we will highlight a particular plant and explain which pollinator(s) it appeals to—whether it be butterflies, moths, hummingbirds, bees of all kinds, beetles or even flies! We will encourage you to join in the call to action to help our pollinators—by joining us in the Million Pollinator Garden Challenge.

There are three simple steps to participating in the Million Pollinator Garden Challenge:

• Plant something for Pollinators
• Register your Garden at MillionPollinatorGardens.org
• Spread the word and get others to join in!

And to get you off to a great start we’re going to give away 1 plant per family each day, to get your own pollinator garden established! Bring a friend along and learn how to bee a part of this collaborative effort!

The daily sessions have no fee but our parking fee does apply.  Please register here for today’s session:
