Pathfinders: Growing for Pollinators

11:00AM - 12:15PM

Give thanks to pollinators as we discover how to make an ideal garden for them. We’ll explore basic skills for building habitats and investigate which flowers pollinators like best.  

What does it mean to be a Backcountry Pathfinder? A Pathfinder is an explorer, someone who respects nature and inspires others through example and leadership. Children ages 8-13 are invited to join our group of Backcountry Pathfinders where they’ll grow skills and become leaders in caring for nature. Participants who complete Pathfinder activities qualify to participate in special events, check out investigation equipment during their Garden visits, and have opportunities where they can utilize their Pathfinder skills to help better the Backcountry.


Pathfinder programs are free with admission to the Garden. Registration is required. Parents/guardians will be required to stay on the Garden grounds for the duration of the event.
