Native peoples planted sunflowers to attract pollinators, and colonial gardeners built hives to protect them. Today’s farmers actually rent bees. Visit us during BugFest at the Museum of Natural Sciences to test your knowledge of bees and other pollinators.

While you're at our booth, make a hat to celebrate the bugs that make us food—bees and other pollinators.
