10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Join us for a day devoted to pollinators and the crucial role they play in our ecosystem. When we hear the word “pollen,” most of us only think of allergies, but pollination is a vital stage in the life cycle of all flowering plants and is an essential part of a healthy ecosystem. About 75 percent of all flowering plant species need the help of animals to move their heavy pollen grains from plant to plant for fertilization.
