Pollinator Palooza

Discover what’s the buzz at Pollinator Palooza! Bring the family to Ford House for a day of fun hands-on activities and demonstrations to explore the world of bees, bugs, birds and butterflies.

At Pollinator Palooza, you can:
• Take a stroll through our butterfly house;
• Peek into a living bee hive with Bees in the D;
• Get all the secrets to attracting hummingbirds to your yard from Wild Birds Unlimited of Grosse Pointe Woods;
• Learn all about beneficial bugs with a live insect presentation from the Leslie Science & Nature Center.

Plus, kids will have fun tasting honey, building a bee hotel, making seed bombs, get their face painted, much more! Everyone will have the opportunity to “adopt a pollinator” to take home. And learn how to become a citizen scientist by planting your very own Monarch Waystation.

Bring your wings and join the pollinator party! Kids are welcome to come dressed as their favorite birds, bugs, bees and butterflies.

Pollinator Palooza is from noon-4 p.m. August 4. Tickets are $12 for adults, $10 for kids. The event is free for children 2 and under.
