National Pollinator Week

June 22 – 28

Visit our space and independently participate in the annual “Bee Blitz” program, BeeSpotter, this Saturday on June 27! The Illinois program increases awareness of native, diverse pollinators. Take photos of bees, then upload photos to the BeeSpotter.

You can also use the iNaturalist.org app or tag us in your pictures on social media.

Yes we have honey bees, but our native plants are home to so many other native bees (arguably much more important to our environment).

Check out this guide to identify our local bees from the Field Museum.
