Join us as we celebrate National Pollinator Week. What is pollination? Why is it an important part of the food web? What kinds of insects and animals facilitate the pollination process? All these questions and more will be answered when you attend the Pollination Celebration on Saturday, June 23rd from 10 am to noon at Howell Territorial Park on Sauvie Island.
We’ll search for pollinators in and around the native hedgerow on the Sauvie Island Organics farm. Using our looking glasses, we’ll get a closer look at pollen on a variety of plants and see how bees gather pollen. We’ll even make Mason Bee Houses to take home and participate in a honey tasting. Don’t forget a picnic to enjoy after the event.
