The Buzz about Pollinators (May 11 – October 31, 2024)
Main Barn Exhibition Space

This interactive exhibit is all about bees and the many other insects and organisms like them that help make farming possible. It explores the topic of pollinators in New York State and their important role in the production of some of the state’s leading crops, including apples, honey, and maple syrup. The exhibit also examines climate change and other threats that pollinators face and how everyone can help them continue to thrive.

Sponsored in part by Nellie and Robert Gipson, and NYCM Insurance.
