FORT BRAGG – All ages are invited to explore, observe and engage in protecting our native pollinators. Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens will be hosting a Bumble Bees and Beneficials Family Field Day on Sunday, April 24 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
There will be lots to discover both in and around the Education Center that day. The event will include kids activities, self-guided field exploration, storytelling, music, bug displays, and seed bomb building. You can also take a deep dive into the world of pollinators with special guest speakers (class details below).
“The garden is always alive with bumble bees, hummingbirds, newts, snakes, skunks, and more. I am excited to have a day that is dedicated to the exploration and enjoyment of the small beings that hold our world together,” said MCBG Garden Manager Jaime Jensen. Come and enjoy family entertainment, and learn more about the great diversity of life that makes a thriving balanced garden ecosystem!
Leif Richardson will be hosting a Bumble Bee Identification class in the morning. Leif is a conservation biologist for the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation who coordinates the California Bumble Bee Atlas project.
In the afternoon, MCBG associate Frédérique Lavoipierre, author of “Garden Allies: The Insects, Birds & Other Animals That Keep Your Garden Beautiful and Thriving,” will provide a class on beneficial insects.
Naturalist Mario Abreu will offer a guided Native Plant Walk in the morning and in the afternoon focused on the native plants that support bumble bees and beneficial insects.
Participation in all of the day’s classes and activities is free with the cost of regular Gardens admission. Advanced registration is required for the classes. Admission tickets must be purchased in advance. Register for classes and pay admissions at www.gardenbythesea.org/calendar/field-day.
