Celebrate Local Pollinators

We’re starting our summer pop-up learning tents in June, just in time for National Pollinator Month!

Stop by the white tent at Westport Woods Conservation Park and learn about our local pollinators. This month the learning tent highlights the importance of pollinators in our ecosystems and offers strategies to improve their habitats. Learn fun and practical information about bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, and other pollinators. The tent will provide interactive learning materials for gardeners and nature enthusiasts of all ages.
