Did you know that pollinators are responsible for pollinating nearly one-third of every bite of food we eat? In 2007, the U.S. Senate designated the last week in June as National Pollinator Week! The purpose of National Pollinator Week is to raise public awareness of the importance of the bees and other pollinators that are needed to produce 80 percent of our flowering plants and one third of our human food crops. Come join the GTM Research Reserve on June 22nd for a day celebrating pollinators like bees, birds, butterflies, and bats! Family Friendly Activities include:~ Pollinator-friendly plant sale~ Sample and sale of local honey~ See a working bee hive from local bee-keeper, Joan Kramer~ Interactive displays about other pollinators including hummingbirds, butterflies, and bats...and how you can welcome them into your garden!~ Tours of GTM Research Reserve's Native Plant Garden!
