Pollinators and Kites
On Saturday, June 4, 2022, WRN Kids visited the Forest Heights Pollinator Patch to learn about bees, plant seeds, and fly kites.
This week at Nature Kids the topic was Pollinators and Kites. Dana Church, a local scientist who studies bees, came and spoke about her book The Beekeepers, and told us interesting facts about bees. It is important to learn about bees because many are endangered, and we need them to pollinate fruits and vegetables.
We planted seeds and small plants in the Forest Heights Pollinator Patch, which is a volunteer managed garden in Meadowlane Park.
Then we went to fly kites in the field. The weather was warm with a slight wind which made it very good for flying kites.
Because it was the last meeting of the year we had cookies as a treat and received a book about birds. It was a fun morning outdoors.
