What's the Buzz: What It Means to Be a Pollinator

What does it mean to be a pollinator? During this field trip, students will learn about the adaptations, life cycles, and conservation of our native bees from our pollinator ecologist and visit our pollinator garden and meadow habitat to learn about the native plants they pollinate! Use field microscopes, magnifying glasses, and other scientific tools to discover the creatures right in our pollinator gardens. Your class will learn the best ways to help our native bees and flowers thrive and how to protect this delicate ecosystem. Students will create their very own leaf print in clay and take home wildflower seeds to plant in their garden at home or at your school!
