Honey bees account for nearly 80% of crop pollination in the US and are essential for a healthy environment. The prairie flowers growing at World Garden Commons is an ideal habitat for these pollinators. To help us learn about the habitat, conditions and life-cycle of bees, Buzz Lab from the Plains Art Museum is hosting a Pollinator Party on July 30.
Buzz by World Garden Commons, stay for a moment Visitors can meet the Buzz Lab interns and enter the HIVE for an interaction with the Queen, screen print a “support local bees” onto t-shirts, taste different Ames Farm Single Source Honeys, collaborate to create a bee box that will be left at the park, spot the queen in a real hive and chat with NDSU/USDA Bee Lab scientists about bee habitat, life and and what we can do to help our pollinators.
In partnership with the Plains Art Museum, Buzz Lab was created to bring together a “swarm” of bright and diverse students for a week of learning about the science and the arts. The Plains Art Museum connects art, artists, and audiences to foster creative, resilient, and welcoming communities.
