June is National Pollinator Month! We invite all our neighbors to celebrate our smallest best friends on Sunday, June 23rd from 11am to 1pm at the Central Queens garden (67-09 108th Street) with crafts, photo safari, hunts, and fun and reliable facts galore!

FOR KIDS Learn how to a build a colorful drinking station for bees and butterflies.

Photo Safari, anyone? Make videos or take pictures of the many pollinators living in our Garden and we will post what you caught on camera on the Commonpoint website.

Learn your “good” bugs from “bad” bugs in a bug hunt, where you will identify various pollinators, observe other insects. (Spoiler alert: they are all pretty good!)

IN THE MEANWHILE

Our gardening specialists will discuss :

  • Why we should care local pollinators
  • How to provide our local pollinators with a healthy diet (It only takes a few seeds in a pot…)
  • Insecticidal practices: do’s and don’ts.

We will be distributing pamphlets and other educational material on pollinators donated by Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation.

Make sure to bring a camera and expect the craft to be messy.

If you have any questions email MarieH at mzanzal@commonpoint.org
