Event Description: 

Join  Master Naturalist Lynn Kochiss and guest expert Caroline Driscoll to explore the world of pollinators. What is pollination? Why is it important? How does it happen? Learn the answers to these questions and more! Following a brief presentation in the museum, we will be in the field observing and photographing the pollinators at work at Goodwin.

On our return to the classroom, we will have a chance to share our photos and discuss what we saw and learned.  We will also make “bee condos” to take home for attracting pollinators to our yards.

All children must be accompanied by an adult for this program.
