Jerry the Butterfly Guy Presents: All About Pollinators (with a T-shirt craft!)

When you hear the word pollinator, you think of bees, right? But did you know that bats, hummingbirds, beetles, dragonflies and and butterflies are pollinators too? All of these important critters help pollinate our orchards, backyard gardens, and our rain forests. Learn how to build and maintain habitat to help our pollinators, as well as answers to questions such as: With which part of their body does a butterfly taste? How many mosquitoes does a single bat eat in one night?

The program concludes with a T-shirt craft! You may purchase a cotton T-shirt for $4.00, or bring your own.
