We thank the bees, bats, birds, moths, and butterflies for their work to help flowers reproduce. Use pressed petals that have naturally fallen from plants to create a landing pad for these generous beings. Then, use seeds and dirt to create a living sculpture of a pollinator you would like to honor to take home and plant. Native Pollinators Day event. The number of families able to participate at any given time will be limited to about five.
