Pollinator Palooza

April 22, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Birds do it. Bees do it. Moths and Butterflies do it. Flies do it, and even the wind does it! What are we talking about? Pollination! We get excited about pollination here at Severson Dells, and we hope you will, too, after you’ve come out to enjoy our celebration of all things pollinator. Visit a variety of booths to learn how your actions can support native pollinators. Build a bee hotel for leaf-cutter bees and grass-carrying wasps. Learn how to design a pollinator garden that will impress the neighbors as well as the bees. Our pollinator-themed games and craft stations entertain visitors of all ages. Free event! No registration necessary.
