2:00 pm - 2:45 pm
Jerry Schneider, creator of the award winning Butterfly Game, will talk about native pollinators: butterflies, bees, and bats. These important critters help pollinate our orchards, backyard gardens, and our forests.
Audiences will learn how to build and maintain habitats that help our pollinator populations, what time of year to mow fields to be most beneficial to pollinators, and what flowers to grow in our gardens to attract butterflies and bees.
After the slide show, children will create pollinator tee shirts, using a combination of fabric dye sprays, plants, and butterfly, bat and dragonfly cut outs. Bring a plain white or light-colored t-shirt, or you can purchase heavy cotton (Gildan) tee shirts for $4.00 cash at the program.Add to Google Calendar
