Discover the unique and specialized native insects that play a critical role in both ecosystems and agriculture. They may be small, but they are mighty, and they come in more patterns than stripes alone! Let’s peruse the garden in search of the diverse array of invertebrates frequenting our native flowers and see how many we can “spot” while observing their behavior. An insect craft will conclude our program once we’ve ensured we’ve all become apprentice entomologists!
Intended for kids and families, the Buds & Blooms Series is a compilation of five in-person public programs intended to introduce participants to the magic and wonder of our native plants and pollinators. Occurring monthly through October, each program highlights a topic pertaining to pollinators and includes an interactive activity as well as a take away. Parental supervision is required and content/material is best suited for children ages 4-12.
This program is free of cost, but RSVP’s are required to reserve your spot.
