Celebrate Our Endangered Pollinators

Learn more about bees, birds, butterflies and beetles and what you can do to help them in their race for survival.
June 12, 2019 - Animals like the endangered rusty patch bumble bee pollinate more than 90 percent of U.S. commercial crops, but pollinators across the globe are in danger of disappearing. 
Learn more about these helpful animals at the annual Pollinator Celebration at the Botanic Garden from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on June 15. 
"Pollinators are on the decline worldwide, and native insects like bumble bees and solitary bees have become scarcer," said Pamela Dupzyk, ABQ BioPark Botanic Garden education coordinator. "Join us to learn more about our pollinators and what you can do to help them."
Attendees will learn about the importance of pollinators like bees, birds, bats, beetles and butterflies, and how to create pollinator habitat. Visitors can also participate in educational activities at hands-on discovery stations. 
The event is included with regular Botanic Garden admission.
