Bug Safari

June 23rd, 2019 12:00pm - 2:00pm

We’ve got 2 amazing programs to finish out the last day of our Pollinator Celebration.

First up, from 12pm-2pm, we’ve got Valerie Warhol, our bug photographer extraordinaire, leading an up close and personal Bug Safari in the garden. They will be taking you thru the garden exploring all the nooks and crannies seeking out bugs of all kinds. Learn how to use a sweep net and beating sheet to give you an expert opportunity to identify all the tiny critters living and sharing space in your garden with you. If you’ve ever wondered who, what, when, where and why- Valerie will help you find those answers and more! And if you fancy yourself a nature photographer, this is the perfect opportunity for you to learn how to find and work with your subject to get the best possible photo.

This event is free and open to everyone. Please RSVP to Danielle at danielle@mygardendreams.com. Donations are welcome.
