This week campers will explore the beautiful and mysterious process of pollination! Pollinators such as butterflies and bees are key to our food supply, and affect our lives in many important ways. Campers will learn about different types of pollinators, their relationships with trees and plants, and why we need to protect native species of plants to help pollinators thrive.
Special activities may include a visit from the Humber Arboretum’s beekeepers, a trip to the bee hives, butterfly netting in the meadow, an up-close investigation of flowers using microscope and hand lenses, a visit to the greenhouse to compare tropical plants with native species, and planting wildflowers to take home. Every week at nature camp includes nature walks, art & ecology, natural mindfulness, eco-games, and swimming.
See the video from Powerful Pollinators (Week 6) 2017 on YouTube.
(Please note, this is a four-day camp as we are closed on the Monday for the Civic Holiday.)
