Celebrate National Pollinators Week and the tiny creatures who beautify our gardens and put food on our tables. Learn about (and purchase) pollinator-friendly plants, make bat puppets, go on naturalist-led walks to see pollinators in action and more.

Thirsty at night? Some pollinators are, like the shy bat. Luckily for the bat, species like mango, cacao, banana, guava and agave rely on bats to pollinate their flowers. From 10am-1pm, kids can take part in an interactive project painting nocturnal flowers in fluorescent colors to add to a night-garden, “glow room” installation. Then make a furry, handmade, paper-puppet bat to fly in the dayglo garden for a nectar feast at night.

At 1pm on Saturday and Sunday, take a Junior Pollinators Walk. Young visitors and their families are encouraged to join an expedition to hunt for colorful flowers and their creature pollinators in the gardens. Ages four and older are welcome with an adult.
