In celebration of National Pollinator Week, this free, all-ages event provides a fun and educational opportunity to learn about bees and other pollinators. Stations are set up around the gardens and can be visited in any order. On display are demonstration honey bee and bumble bee colonies, examples of wild Michigan bees and how to build bee hotels, plants and gardening practices to support pollinators, as well as how we need pollinators in food production. Attendees can make clay seed bombs, go on guided pollinator tours, pet a bumble bee, learn about how bee bodies work, and have their face painted with a pollinator!
Located on MSU's Campus in East Lansing, MI.
MSU's W. J. Beal Botanical Gardens is a unique display of more than 5,000 different kinds of plants that can be found on a five-acre on-campus site. Although the Gardens serve as an outdoor laboratory for students, the general public is warmly invited to make use of the garden to learn about and enjoy plants in a beautiful setting. The Gardens are open at all times throughout the year without an admission charge, serving as a wonderful experience for children who are encouraged to come, learn, and enjoy.
