Adventures in the Zoo: Bees, Bats & Pollination
Both bees and bats are responsible for pollinating many of our food sources, and both are currently threatened by the careless actions of humans. Without them, we are in big trouble. Come on down to the zoo to catch a glimpse of these wonderful animals, and learn what we can do to protect them. Sponsored by Friends of the Lords Park Zoo. No registration required.
- noon to 2 p.m. Sunday, June 26
