Bats, Bees, Beetles, and Butterflies in Muncie

Submitted by on July 10, 2019 – 8:31 amNo Comment

Amazing PollinatorsRoad Trips Gardeners (and their kids) will have the chance to show off their “pollination powers” in an interactive exhibition in the Minnetrista Center, 1200 North Minnetrista Parkway, Muncie, Indiana.

The Amazing Pollinators Exhibit, open now through September 2, 2019, lets visitors take on the role of bats, bees, beetles, and butterflies. The exhibit includes a colorful, curvy maze, undulating walls, a bat cave, bee hive, beetle den, and butterfly garden.

Maze sections are themed by environments that require pollinating: home garden, meadow, farm, orchard, wetland, jungle, roadside habitats, etc. Activities outside the maze allow visitors to learn more about pollination and pollinators.

Amazing Pollinators is created in partnership with the Florida Museum of Natural History and Geoffrey M. Curley + Associates.
