Pollinators, such as bees, beetles, butterflies, and flies are critical for our economy, environment, and agriculture. Pollinators help sustain our ecosystems and produce our natural resources by helping plants reproduce. Almost a third of crops depend on insect pollinators with more than 80% of flowering plants depending on insect pollinators.

Yet, pollinator populations are in decline. Butterfly Pavilion is a leader in pollinator protection and conservation and engages the community with opportunities to get involved with us. The Pollinator Palooza Festival offers a fantastic opportunity to learn about pollinators while having fun. Attendees will discover how they can get involved in pollinator conservation right in their own backyard!


Non-Members: Festival is included in general admission on June 29.

Members: Free
