We’re throwing a pollinator party, and you’re invited! Can you guess which insects and critters will attend? Meet Dr. Neelendra Joshi, an entomologist from the University of Arkansas, and come learn about nature’s gardeners and what they do to keep the world green and blooming. Then, flex your creative muscles and join us for some all-ages artmaking. Decorate your very own binoculars so you can spot birds, bees, beetles, and butterflies on our beautiful grounds and at home. Free, all supplies will be provided.
