We’re celebrating #pollinatorweek! Did you know that pollinators like bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds, provide 1 out of 3 bites of food we eat? Say thanks by planting native plants, supporting local farmers, and educating others about the importance of pollinators!
Learn all about pollinators at Withrow Park with a full day of family fun! Come join us for a scavenger hunt, pollinator themed kids activities, build a pollinator garden, face painting, free seed giveaway, a native plant sale, and more! Follow our event on Facebook!
