Event details

We’ll look for pollinators such as bees, wasps, flies, moths, butterflies, beetles and thrips and observe the important job they do helping plants grow. And we’ll search for the types of insects that support our bird populations. Participants will take home a milkweed planting.

This program is sponsored by the Thorn Creek Audubon Society.
