Celebrate National Pollinator Week at Clark Public Utilities first-ever Pollinator Festival on June 24 from 10am to 4pm. More than 25 agencies, organizations, universities, artisans and local businesses are participating in this free outdoor festival located at our Operation Center at 8600 NE 117th Ave, Vancouver, WA.
Festival visitors can take a pollinator garden tour with our friendly staff and learn how to provide food and habitat for the many varieties of pollinators native to Clark County. Doug Tallamy, professor and best-selling author of Nature’s Best Hope, will give a presentation on practical, effective, and easy ways to turn your yard into a conservation corridor to provide wildlife habitat. Pick up pollinator-friendly plants and seeds at the festival and bring your inspiration home.
This family-friendly event will include crafts and activities for children. A demo beehive will offer a close-up look at bees. Pop-up Farmers Market, seminars with local experts, food trucks and music will add to the fun. Mark your calendar for this lively community celebration of some of the hardest working organisms in the animal kingdom. Dress for the weather and bring your hat, water bottle and some friends!
