Bugs in Your Garden (Ages 5-10)
September 24, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Event: Bugs in Your Garden (Ages 5-10)
Many children do not like bugs. Many are inappropriately afraid of bees. Why is this and what can we do about it? This one hour PowerPoint presentation with multiple short videos included gives children the two things they need to become friends with the insects in their garden: a sense of control over and a sense of wonder for the amazing community of garden insects. After the talk, Master Naturalist Beverly Davis will lead the group on a short walk so they can experience garden insects first hand.
Location: Greenhouse Classroom
Dates: September 24
Time: 2:00 – 4:00 pm

$5 per child. Child must be accompanied by an adult. Adults are free of charge.
Michael Andorsky, a retired pediatrician, is Baltimore City Master Gardener Board Secretary and co-chairman of POLIN, the pollinator initiative committee of the Baltimore City Master Gardeners. He also studies bees as a volunteer for the US Geological Survey in Beltsville, MD. These combined interests have led him to help try to avert the threats facing our pollinators by lecturing on pollinator and gardening issues. Among their many services and educational activities, Baltimore City Master Gardeners help install pollinator gardens throughout Baltimore.
