Bees & Flowers: Best Friends Forever

This one hour interactive presentation, aimed at ages 5 to 10, outlines the amazing co-evolution of bees and flowering plants over the past one hundred thirty million years.

Threats to this relationship and what we can do about it are also discussed.  RSVP. $5 per child. Child must be accompanied by an adult. Adults are free of charge. Designed for ages 5-10.

Michael Andorsky, a retired pediatrician, is Baltimore City Master Gardener Board Secretary and co-chairman of POLIN, the pollinator initiative committee of the Baltimore City Master Gardeners. He also studies bees as a volunteer for the US Geological Survey in Beltsville, MD. These combined interests have led him to help try to avert the threats facing our pollinators by lecturing on pollinator and gardening issues. Among their many services and educational activities, Baltimore City Master Gardeners help install pollinator gardens throughout Baltimore.
