Pollinators: All the Buzz highlights pollinators from all around the world with signage, statues and live bees for visitors to observe in an indoor 2,500 square foot greenhouse garden environment filled with pollinator plants. The wide variety of plants come from the world class Marjorie McNeely Conservatory collection and will showcase the different pollinator syndromes, as well as how different flowers attract their own pollinators.
Bugs: Outside the Box
Now is your chance to examine all the intricacies of the insect world...
