Audiences will get to know about our local pollinators, featuring bees, bats, hummingbirds, beetles, dragonflies, and butterflies. These are important critters that help pollinate our orchards, backyard gardens, and our rain forests.
Audiences will learn how to build and maintain habitats that help our pollinator populations, what time of year to mow fields that is most beneficial to pollinators, and what flowers to grow in our gardens to attract butterflies and bees.
After the presentation, children will create pollinator tee shirts, using a combination of fabric dye sprays, plants, and butterfly, bat and dragonfly cutouts. Children may purchase heavy cotton (Gildan) tee shirts for $4.00, or bring their own. Registration is required, (413)743-8345.

His programs help inspire youth and adults alike, to pay more attention to our friends, the butterflies, bees, bats, and other pollinators. Audiences learn how to create and maintain pollinator habitats. In recent years, a number of schools have built butterfly gardens on the Monarch’s migration path.
