2016 Bee Palooza

Date: June 19, 2016
Time: 1-4 p.m.
Location: 2016 Bee Palooza MSU Horticulture Gardens, 1066 Bogue St, East Lansing, MI 48824

The MSU Horticulture Gardens will be buzzing with activity, as the Department of Entomology hosts the fifth annual Bee Palooza. For people of all ages, this is a free, fun and educational event organized by volunteers to provide an afternoon of interactive activities centered on understanding the wonderful world of pollinators.

The beautiful gardens will be dotted with displays to demonstrate and explain honey bee colonies, bumble bees, the wild bees of Michigan, plants to support pollinators, and how important bees and other pollinators are for the food supply. Hands-on workshops will show you how to create a native bee hotel, how to make native plant seed “bombs,” and how to identify different pollinators in your garden. Get information for starting your own pollinator garden. Pollinator-themed face painting will be back by popular demand too!

Designed for kids and adults, this event would make a great Father’s Day activity. The MSU Horticulture Gardens are located on the southwest corner of Bogue Street and Wilson Road in East Lansing. For updates and more information visit MSU Bee-Palooza or our Facebook Event page.
