Pollinators, Plants, and People

People depend on plants, which depend on pollinators! Through a day filled with activities and a trip to the Iowa State Horticultural Research Farm, campers will explore the connection between all three. 

Campers will need a sack lunch, water bottle, sunscreen, and bug spray. Snacks will be provided. This camp is co-sponsored by Iowa State University Integrated Pest Management.
