Passion for Pollinators

Wednesday, August 1, 2018
Day 1 Playfield – 2121 7th Ave., Seattle

Commit to protecting pollinators—from butterflies to bees—and build a mini-garden that is a pollinator perfect destination in backyards or on balconies. Plant a mini-garden (first 350 guests), paint a garden rock with a pledge to conserve pollinators, take selfies in bee costumes or with pollinator-themed photo frames and props, take home a seed packet to plant (700 available) and meet one of Woodland Park Zoo’s charming ambassador animals during the first half hour.
