You might not realize it, but there are working bee hives located on our green roof! See how scientist Allen and volunteer Ann work with these important pollinators, and how they have an impact on Lincoln Park as a whole.
Allen explained to us that bees are important pollinators, and we know that bees help pollinate a variety of plants. But how do they do it? In today’s hands-on activity, families will learn all about pollination! Click here for instructions.
Can you match the pollinator to the plant it pollinates? Click here to download our card sort and see if you can match them all! (Need a hint to get you started? Click here to learn how the cacao tree is pollinated!)
