On a day when the temperature hit triple digits outside, the Bee Chicas and their class were staying cool in the library and learning about the importance of pollinators. The Bee Chicas lively presentation highlighted helpful recommendations on what each of us can do to promote pollinators, which are not just honey bees, but include native bees, butterflies, moths, birds and many others. A fun hands-on part of the class asked participants to pick out various fruits and vegetable and guess which relied on pollinators to succeed. The answer: lots and lots! Without pollinators, we would only be able to enjoy a fraction of the food on our table.
The Boulder Library Foundation is proud to provide the funding for the Bee Chicas educational sessions.
