Celebrate National Pollinator Week with family-friendly activities buzzing with fun! The 6th annual Bumblebee Jamboree provides interactive experiences to help us better understand the role local pollinators play, and what each of us can do in our own backyards to protect natural resources. Families are invited to participate in hands-on experiences at this free event that encourages kids to explore, learn about and help our buzzing little friends. Children can enjoy pollinator-related crafts, puppet shows, snacks, relay races and dances, and interactive activities. Get close to pollinators at the Virginia butterfly safari tents, VCU’s Bug Lab and the enclosed bumblebee and honeybee observation hives.
