Butterflies and Bees Celebration was first created out of concern for the plight of the Monarch Butterflies. From the beginning we've sought to garner public interest in pollinators and the roles they play in our lives, and educate people about some very simple, basic things everyone can do to help pollinators. The 2014 and 2015 events were very popular and successful, and we expect this year's event to be as fun and exciting.
As always we will have native plant seedlings, including shrubs, to give away. We will have a Science Station with microscopes and slides of butterfly and bee wings. Our Demonstration Station will feature simple things anyone can do to help pollinators. And the Information Station contains handouts and publications about Missouri native plants and pollinators.
This year for the first time we will have face painting! And, of course, the Craft Station will keep the little ones busy creating fun mementos to remember the day.
