at the Buhr Park Childrens' Wet Meadow
Come watch butterflies and other pollinators visiting the wildflowers.
- MSU entomologist Julianna Tuell will capture insects for kids to safely see up close.
- Learn how kids can be safe around bees.
- Hear about how beneficial insects help us grow blueberries, tomatoes and other foods.
- Kids can make a bee house (from natural materials) to take home.
Dr. Tuell speaks frequently about pollinators and native plants. She coauthored Attracting Beneficial Insects with Native Flowering Plants (MSU Extension Bulletin E-2973) and recently published a study that identified more than 100 native bee species on Michigan blueberry farms.
We'll also have a display of nest blocks from Matt Demmon.
This event is co-sponsored by Wild Ones and Natural Area Preservation.
