Program image

Help your
students’ knowledge to bloom as we buzz into the world of pollinators!  This
engaging program will help your students to build a deeper understanding of
pollination and the wildlife that helps plants to share their pollen.  During this session, students will discover
some of the unique physical traits of pollinators that help them to accomplish
their job as well as the different ways that pollinators can communicate.  We’ll wrap-up the programming by exploring
how your students can become a Pollinator Pal.

The Lee Richardson Zoo's Distance Learning Studio offers a multitude
of environmental programs to students all over the nation. Our programs include
2-4 live animals. However, we are currently unable to give programs from actual
exhibits around the zoo.
