Boulder Bee Festival

By Heather Stone

Bee Boulder Family Festival

September is Pollinator Appreciation Month here in Boulder, Colorado. Boulder is home to more than 550 species of native bees and the city has made a pledge to help recognize, protect and celebrate this diverse pollinator population.  All month long there have been activities for both kids and adults including; pollinator story times, a student poster contest, a native bee lecture, and a hive tour to name a few.

This Saturday we wrap up Pollinator Appreciation Month for 2018 with the Fourth Annual Boulder Bee Festival.  Come help us celebrate our pollinators at Central Park in Boulder from 10:00AM -1:00PM. It will be tons of fun with educational activities, live music, face painting and prizes. Come by the BBB Seed tent to chat pollinators, flowers or whatever you like. We will have crafts for the kids, stickers, seeds and much more.  Hope to see you there!
