Pollinator Week is an annual event celebrated internationally in support of pollinator health. It's a time to celebrate pollinators and spread the word about what we can do to protect them.

Visit the Butterfly House, Bug Bungalow and Alexander Bee House as we enjoy fun pollinator-focused activities sure to delight the whole family. A Scholastic Book Fair will be held in the Carousel Spirit Room each day.

Keep your eyes open for special guests Grassland Groupies, and more who will be joining us 9:30am to 12:30pm each day.

Remember the Gardens will be closed on Wednesday, June 19th in honor of Juneteenth.

Pollinator Week Film Screening

June 20, 21, & 22, 2024

Join us this Thursday, Friday and Saturday for a special Pollinator Week film screening featuring PBS documentary My Garden of a Thousand Bees.

My Garden of a Thousand Bees follows acclaimed wildlife filmmaker Martin Dohrn as he sets out to record all the bee species in his tiny urban garden in Bristol, England. Filming with one-of-a-kind lenses he forged at his kitchen table, he catalogues more than 60 different species, from Britain’s largest bumblebees to scissor bees the size of a mosquito. Over long months, Dohrn observes how differences in behavior set different species apart. He eventually gets so close to the bees he can identify individuals by sight, documenting life at their level as we have never seen it before.

Included with General Admission | Screenings will run hourly in the Terrace Room
