For people of all ages, this is a free, fun and educational afternoon of interactive activities centered on understanding the wonderful world of pollinators. The beautiful gardens will be dotted with displays on honey bees, bumble bees, wild bees of Michigan, plants to support pollinators, garden pesticide safety, bee-friendly lawn-care and how important bees and other pollinators are for our food supply. Hands-on workshops will show you how make a native bee hotel, how to make seed “bombs” to support pollinators, and how to identify different pollinators in your garden. Pollinator-themed face painting will be back by popular demand, too!

The MSU Horticulture Gardens are located on the southwest corner of Bogue Street and Wilson Road on the MSU campus in East Lansing, Michigan, with ample parking on the west and east side of the gardens.
