Come and celebrate the pollinators in our world at Hitchcock’s second annual Pollination Celebration Day! We will have events and activities for the whole family, including a pollinator scavenger hunt, and a monarch migration obstacle course. This year Jennifer Unkles’ monarch butterfly citizen science program is back, and this time we’re offering it twice! Learn how to tag monarchs, keep track of them and contribute to a growing body of data that helps us understand monarch migration. Make your own pennants and streamers, or bring your own pollinator costume from home  for marching in our pollinator parade! Learn how to make your garden more friendly to pollinators! Bring a picnic and stay for the whole thing. This event is rain or shine.
