National Pollinator Week

June 21 @ 9:00 am - June 26 @ 4:00 pm

National Pollinator Week is an annual event celebrated all over the world in the last full week in June. The event was started and is managed by the Pollinator Partnership (Pollinator.org) in support of pollinator health.

Pollinators are insects and small animals like birds, butterflies, and bees that pollinate plants and make our gardens and world greener. During this week, nature lovers and conscious citizens come together to celebrate pollinators and raise awareness about different ways in which they can be protected.

To celebrate National Pollinator Week, MBG has scheduled the following children’s program and special Garden walk.
