About the Program
What is all the buzz about pollinators these days? These little creatures play a vital role in our daily sustenance, yet they are so often overlooked and currently facing giant challenges. Join me for an exciting day to learn about the magic of pollinators, pollination and how the process is interconnected with the plant world, other life forms and us as humans. We will explore some of the issues that pollinators are facing today and how we can make a difference to aid their plight.

We will then take our newly obtained knowledge of local pollinators and go on a hunt to discover how many of them are in your school yard, make mason bee houses and have large fun. For Spring and Fall programs we will get the opportunity to examine a honey bee observation hive.

About the Community Educator
Outdoor environmental education has been one of Jessica's passions since she was a child- she vividly remembers school trips out to the mountains to take Earth Keepers and Sunship Earth programs (teaching about natural systems and earth stewardship) at a local summer camp and thinking "why can't we always learn this way?!".

So, since then Jessica has worked for summer camps, facilitated outdoor ed programs in schools, created a successful local earth stewardship program called Earth Culture Club, co-founded the Four Nations Coalition of Indigenous Medicines, and developed pollinator education classes for the Bee Awareness Society so that she can help kids get outside in nature where we learn best!
