National Pollinator Week is a time to celebrate pollinators and spread the word about what you can do to protect them. Ten years ago the U.S. Senate’s unanimous approval and designation of a week in June as “National Pollinator Week” marked a necessary step toward addressing the urgent issue of declining pollinator populations. Pollinator Week has now grown into an international celebration of the valuable ecosystem services provided by bees, birds, butterflies, bats and beetles. June 19-25, 2017 has been designated National Pollinator Week by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Department of the Interior. The Myriad Gardens will celebrate with two classes, one for children and one for adults:

Celebrate National Pollinator Week, June 19-25, 2017, with us as we focus on one of our favorite pollinators, the honey bee. We’ve got this class for kids, a class for adults and honey for all. Young explorers will love this interactive class where we’ll dive into the mind of a bee. We’ll talk about why bees buzz, what attracts them and why they’re so important to us and our world. We’ll visit our pollinator garden and look for bees and wrap up with a honey tasting and bee-inspired craft for kids to take home.
