FOR MEMBERS ONLY
Bees, butterflies, beetles and more! Bring your family to learn about some of the native pollinators at Battle Creek Cypress Swamp. We will get a brief overview of some of our common local pollinators, and then pick up your take-home insect kit (includes net, viewing container, insect ID guide and insect scavenger hunt activity) and head out on your own to look high and low in our garden and meadow for butterflies and beetles.
This replaces the "Bee Happy" program to adapt to coronavirus restrictions.
Please read our full COVID policy statement and waiver.
Program Fee: Free, There is a $5 supply fee for each take-home insect kit. You can request more than one kit.
Reservations are required by Friday, July 3, 2020 to guarantee a take home insect kit.
Advanced Reservations are required. No walk ins allowed
Location: Battle Creek Nature Center. Meet at the pavilion
