Without the assistance of pollinators – bees, pollen wasps, butterflies, moths and more – most plants would not be able to produce fruits and seeds, which are an important food source for people and wildlife.
The St. Charles County Parks and Recreation Department invites adults and children ages 6 and older to learn all about pollination at “Pollinator Party” from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 20, at Towne Park, 100 Towne Park Drive in Foristell.
At this new hands-on program, participants learn facts about pollination, play a game to learn how bees help our planet and see first-hand how pollinators assist with producing the food we love to eat! It’s also a good resource for scouts looking to obtain a pollination badge.
The program is free, but pre-registration is required. For more information or to register, visit http://bit.ly/2019PollinatorParty or call the Parks Department at 636-949-7535.
