​Family-friendly Festival Celebrates Importance of Pollinators

From bees and birds to bats and butterflies, pollinators play a big role in our lives. If you want to know what all the buzz is about, plan on making a beeline to the seventh annual Pollinator Festival at Lake Crabtree County Park on Saturday, June 15.

In honor of National Pollinator Week, the festival will celebrate everything that pollinators do for the planet. Bring the whole family for games, crafts, prizes, food and fun. Experts will be on hand to share the buzzworthy benefits of pollinators, and vendors will sell local honey and other hive products.

“The Pollinator Festival is a great opportunity to learn about the importance of pollinators to our ecosystem, as well as enjoy a day at the park with your family,” said Chris Snow, director of Wake County Parks, Recreation and Open Space.

The Pollinator Festival takes place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Lake Crabtree County Park, 1400 Aviation Parkway, Morrisville. Registration is not required.
