Pollinator Day in the Garden

Saturday June 17 at 1:00 PM
Riverside Park East – corner of Riverview Dr & Speedvale Ave
Guelph ON
1pm – 4pm
Saturday June 17 at 1:00 PM

Join us for a fun, family-friendly afternoon anytime between 1pm and 4pm, where you can learn about pollinators and the pollinator-friendly plants that will support them. With the help of volunteer experts, use an insect net to look at bees, butterflies, and other pollinating insects up close; identify the pollinator-friendly plants in our gardens along the river; make your own solitary bee nest using natural materials; discuss the current status of pollinators and how you can help; and more. Plus you can take home a free pollinator friendly plant!

Visit the pollinator-friendly gardens planted along the trail. A short (10 minute walk) takes you to 5 different gardens that will truly inspire you to create your own pollinator habitat. There will be two scheduled walking tours at 2pm and 3pm.

Park on Riverview Drive, and meet in Riverside Park near the corner of Riverview Dr and Speedvale Ave.
