From bees and butterflies to bats, pollinators are an integral part of every ecosystem. Students will learn about the different types of pollinators found in Boston and the adaptations that allow them to survive. Using hand lenses and sweep nets, they will be able to make up-close, hands-on observations of some of these important local species and the plants they pollinate. This program is offered in the Spring and Fall.
