The public is invited to attend a neat opportunity happening this Saturday as an extension of the 4-H Pollinator Habitat training, that included Water Connects Us All, Native Bees, and Monarchs on the Move Programs, that took place earlier this summer in Clayton Center. At the Pollinator Habitat Field Day, participants will learn about the connection of pollinators to our food supply, interact with live monarch butterflies, and participate in activities about the importance of adding pollinator habitat to our communities. Both youth and adults will enjoy the visiting the Pollinator Oasis and Year 1 Prairie Restoration Project, as well as participate in hands-on learning experiences about the importance of pollinators. There will also be opportunities for participants to pick some flowers and seeds.
