Pollinator Power Workshop by TRCA
Pollinators are extremely important creatures, integral to biodiversity and our very way of life. This interactive and fun full-day workshop explores the role of pollinators including bees, butterflies, and birds. Experience a variety of hands-on activities and tools to support your students in learning about habitats, biodiversity, and interactions in the environment.
We will explore the factors that threaten pollinator populations, and experience citizen science activities that connect students with real scientific monitoring projects. Participants will learn how to create pollinator habitat and support biodiversity by building solitary bee homes and making wildflower seed balls.
This workshop is led by TRCA’s Kortright Pollinator Educator. The Kortright Centre for Conservation has offered pollinator programming for over 40 years.
Come out, get involved, and discover the power of pollinators! Course fee of $75 includes refreshments, lunch, and materials for starting a pollinator planting.
