Science Night at Jefferson Farm and Garden is returning this year, with a handful of in-person events during the next few months. Jefferson Farm and Garden will kick off the series on Thursday, June 24, with an event focused on pollinators. This month’s Science Night is titled, “Help Save the Pollinators,” and takes place during the national 2021 Pollinator Week, which is June 21-25.
Registration is required for the event, which is free and open to the public, and is limited to just 50 individuals. Interested attendees can register at cafnralumni.com/pollinatornight. Once 50 individuals have registered, the event registration will close.
Check-in for the event will begin at 5:30 p.m. at Jefferson Farm and Garden, and tours start at 6 p.m. and go until dusk. There will be tours at Jefferson, as well as the nearby South Farm Research Center. Attendees will spend time at both locations, with a wagon ride connecting the two.
The Science Night event will offer an opportunity to tour the butterfly house and native garden at Jefferson Farm and Garden. There will also be discussions on how to establish a pollinator habitat, monarchs and milkweeds, and bumblebee needs, as well as other topics. The Missouri Department of Conservation sponsored much of the research related to the discussions.
