With rain and potential lightening in the forecast for Saturday, June 25, pollinators will most certainly be taking cover. The good news is that tomorrows forecast, for Sunday, June 26, looks bright for our butterfly and bee friends, and anyone interested in observing them. We want a safe, enjoyable experience for everyone.

Become a Pollinator Protector and Come to the Pollinator Safari!

Hosts will take out groups on “Pollinator Safari” walks through the preserve and help identify pollinators such as bees and butterflies. Participants will learn how to use cell phone photography to make observations and hone their pollinator identification skills.

Participants will discover Nature’s Essential Workers and learn how they can become a Pollinator Protector at this Fun, Family-friendly Pollinator Safari. The first 30 to register for the event at will receive a packet of native seeds. Attendees are invited to come dressed as their favorite pollinator to receive a special gift. Educational exhibitors, fun photo ops, crafts & cool activities with prizes are planned.

Wear a bee, butterfly or bird costume and receive a fun gift!
