RICHMOND, Va. -- Save the date for Saturday, June 17. That’s when Bumblebee Jamboree will take place. It’s a free family event buzzing with fun!
Bumblebee Jamboree aims to educate the public on pollinators and their importance.
“Pollinators include more than just bees,” said Lela Martin, co-chair of Bumblebee Jamboree 2023. “They include butterflies, birds, bugs and bats. And we have a way to teach families about all of those creatures in a fun way.”
There will be more than 15 activity tents to families to stop by, like children’s crafts, snacks provided by pollinators, a planting station and an observation beehive.
New this year, some signage will be in Spanish and there will be an “Ask a Gardener” table for adults.
The event will take place from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Maymont Children’s Farm (1000 Spottswood Road in Richmond).
