Did you know? Pollinating insects are really our best friends! We rely on them more than we realize, and often see them as pests rather than wildlife powerhouses who actually help keep us alive. With a focus on bees and butterflies, visit our Powerful Pollinators station as we buzz around the park over the Canada Day Long Weekend. Find out how you can be a bee’s BFF, help the Monarch butterfly with just one plant and discover why pollinators are so important to all of us.
