Where: Horticulture Building at Lansdowne Park

Join us at Tree Fest and learn more about the hard-working insects that help us to grow fruit, vegetables, and beautiful flowers.

We’ve been surveying gardens around the region all summer and are learning to recognize the diversity of bees, wasps, flies, beetles, butterflies, and other pollinators. Come and have a look at the raised garden beds next to the Horticulture Building at Lansdowne Park to see what pollinators have found the variety of food plants and flowers there.
