This summer, join us to learn all about Minnesota’s state bee—the rusty patched bumble bee! These pollinators play a critical role in Minnesota’s ecosystem. Participants will learn more about pollinators, how to support their habitat at home or out in nature, and get ready to participate in this year’s Bumble Bee Count event! Registration is free for members, but requested in advance.

This event is presented in conjunction with Bugs: Outside the Box on view at the Bell through September 11. This exhibition features a selection of greatly enlarged insect sculptures, each showcasing the beauty hidden within the (mini)beasts of the natural world. Intricate details not visible to the naked eye are showcased alongside educational topics, including an exciting look at museum collections and taxonomy, and an exploration of the power of magnification. Read more about this exhibit here.
