Did you know that for every three bites of food you take, one bite was made possible by pollinators like bats, bees, and other insects?

“Pollinator Superheroes” is the topic at Audubon Community Nature Center’s Little Explorers on Saturday, June 8, 10-11:30 a.m. You and the three- to eight-year-old child(ren) in your life are invited to come and learn all about what pollinators are, how they move pollen, and why they are important.

Plants have pollen and they need to move it. Sometimes the wind does it, but sometimes plants need pollinators to help them.

Learn all about these amazing animals and how they move pollen as you head outside to find them in action.

The program includes an indoor lesson followed by outdoor exploration and a snack. If time and weather allow, a craft is included. Little Explorers takes place rain or shine, so be sure to dress for the weather.

Little Explorers is presented 10-11:30 a.m. on the second Saturday of every month at Audubon.
