Join us as we celebrate the hard work of the pollinators that are so vital to our ecosystems and agriculture. This event will feature bee keeping demos, honey tasting, live monarch butterflies, pollinator hikes, and much more. Make a pollinator plant seed ball or a native bee house, and learn how you can be a friend to pollinators. Come watch these insects in action and discover why Wehr is a pollinator paradise.

Celebrating National Pollinator Week All Month Long
Pollinators are the unsung heroes of planet Earth. Without their work, our gardens, farms, and natural ecosystems could not exist. Recent declines in national pollinator populations have alarmed scientists and backyard naturalists alike. In honor of Pollinator month Wehr will celebrate the fascinating world of bees, birds, butterflies, bats and beetles (and more!). Join us during June at one of these public events and learn what you can do to help these vital creatures.
The Milkweed sale was such a great success! Thanks to everyone who helped and everyone who came to purchase milkweed and other plants.
We ran out of milkweed too soon so we are planning a casual additional milkweed sale mid-June. This will include many of the unique varieties and shade tolerant milkweed that was not ready yet. Stay Tuned!
Our County Grounds Nature Tour continues this Sunday at 1pm Pollinator Day Event @ Wehr Nature Center
