The summer solstice is celebrated in a variety of ways across the globe. From skygazing in Croatia to sun salutations in Times Square, The Nature Museum will recognize the longest day of the year by honoring our pollinators.

Did you know that most of the bees in a hive are female or that bees dance to tell their co-workers where to find a patch of flowers?  Come celebrate the start of summer with us and learn about bees and pollinators.  We will walk through our garden and surrounding fields with one of our Environmental Educators to learn more about these amazing insects and animals!
