Online Pollinator Festival 2020

Pollinators of all kinds – insects, birds, and mammals - are vital to our food production system and the vitality of our natural environments. As home gardeners, we can support pollinators by filling even a small corner of our gardens with plants that provide food and habitat for them.

Pollinator Week - June 22-28, 2020 - www.pollinator.org

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the 3rd Annual Dancing Oaks Pollinator Festival scheduled for Saturday, June 20th at the nursery is canceled.

Instead, during National Pollinator Week, June 22-28, we will share a series of pollinator-themed videos, handouts, and activities provided by our Pollinator Festival partner organizations and the Pollinator Partnership. Scroll down the page for links to those resources. ↓ ↓ ↓
