Prairie Pollinator Party at Great Plains Nature Center

WICHITA ­­– Have you heard the buzz? Staff at the Great Plains Nature Center, 6232 E. 29th Street North, Wichita, are gearing up for the annual Prairie Pollinator Party Saturday, Sept. 26 from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. and you’re invited.

Join the nature center staff as they celebrate winged things like our state insect, the honey bee, and all its many buzzin’ cousins who pollinate plants. From bee films in the Coleman Auditorium and arts and crafts, to face painting and indoor and outdoor activities, this free event is sure to be fun for the whole family.

Other activities include a presentation by Great Plains Nature Center director, Jim Mason, at 1 p.m. on the migration of the monarch butterfly as part of the 2015 Wichita Big Read.

Attendees can also sign up for one of the nature center’s “Introduction to Backyard Beekeeping” workshops, and taste a variety of honeys and honey products for sale in the Owl’s Nest gift shop, courtesy of local beekeepers.
