Did you know that approximately every third bite of food is the result of the activity of a pollinator? Pollinators play an important role in our lives and will be the center of the 4-H Pollinator Celebration on Thursday, July 28th from 9:00 – 11:00 a.m. Youth ages 8-12 can join the celebration at Hall High School, 800 W Erie St., Spring Valley, by registering at go.illinois.edu/hallpollinator. Participants will learn through hands-on activities making observations in the conservation garden, learning about pollinators, native flowers, and making seed bombs.
The free event is limited to the first 50 registered by July 21st. Illinois 4-H is the largest out-of-school youth organization in Illinois, challenging youth to “learn by doing” with fun, hands-on activities that teach skills for living.
