Take on the role of bats, bees, beetles and butterflies. Show off your Pollination Powers and discover their wondrous benefits to earth’s flora, ecosystems and human civilization. The exhibit includes a colorful, curvy maze, undulating walls, a bat cave, bee hive, beetle den and butterfly garden. Maze sections are themed by environments that require pollinating: home garden, meadow, farm, orchard, wetland, jungle, roadside habitats, etc. Activities outside the maze allow visitors to learn more about pollination and pollinators.
Minnetrista is proud to be the first location this immersive role-play traveling exhibition will be available!
Amazing Pollinators is created in partnership with the Florida Museum of Natural History and Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation.
