Explore some of the ecological relationships between plants and pollinators that have evolved over millions of years! All ages welcome.

Description: Pollinators like bees, butterflies, wasps, flies, beetles, hummingbirds, and moths are crucial to sustaining biological diversity on Planet Earth. Join Bee City USA founder, Phylllis Stiles, to meet some of the world's 20,000 species of bees and learn how to distinguish bees from flies and wasps; and moths from butterflies. Just bring your curiosity to watch a butterfly proboscis sipping nectar, and bees collecting pollen in their corbiculae or scopae. We will explore some of the ecological relationships between plants and pollinators that have evolved over millions of years.

All ages welcome.
