Honeybee Hikes
Wednesdays through December 10, 2019 • 10:00am-11:00am
Leach Botanical Garden, Portland, OR


Your little honey bee will walk the trails - listening to the wind and the creek, touching soft leaves and looking for wildlife like bunnies, woodpeckers and deer. Our wonderful guides will then read a story and help the children craft something fun. Each week is different with seasonal themes. Ages: 2–5 years, accompanied by an adult. Meets at the Manor House. Dress for the weather! $3.00 per child, non-walkers free.

Punch cards available in the Leach Garden Gift House—purchase 5 hikes and get the 6th one free. Groups with 10+ children/adults must preregister by contacting the Education Coordinator, 503-823-1671. Please check our website for possible cancellations due to weather or the impacts of our upper garden construction project.

Pollinators Workshop
Wednesday, November 13, 2019 • 6:00pm-8:30pm
Leach Botanical Garden, Portland, OR


Sponsored by East Multnomah Soil & Water Conservation District. Gardens are pollinated by a variety of insects that help flowers set seed and help fruit and vegetable plants produce an edible harvest. Mostly familiar with European honey bees, few of us are aware of the many flies, beetles, moths and butterflies at our doorsteps that also provide critical pollination services. In this workshop you will learn about the different kinds of pollinators that might be living in your garden, discover a plant palette to help attract and support pollinators, and go beyond the bloom to consider ways to provide shelter, water, nesting, and overwintering sites.

Meets in the Manor House. Free. Registration in advance is required. www.emswcd.org/workshops. Leach Botanical Garden, 6704 SE 122nd Ave., Portland, OR 97236, 503-823-1671. www.leachgarden.org
