Pollinator Month will buzz into history 4-7 p.m. Wednesday at the Dangberg Historic Home Ranch in Minden.
While June was set aside to celebrate pollinators in Carson Valley, the actual bees, butterflies, bats and other creatures that help angiosperms propagate will continue going about their business.
On Saturday, the UNR Cooperative Extension office presented a bingo game where players looked for different plants and items like fallen logs and a bat box.
The bingo cards had information on the back about each square and why it’s important to pollinators. The square was marked by a bee sticker as each item was found.
As guests completed the walk, they could head over to the main table for a honey stick as their prize.
“It gets people outside to see one of the most amazing free open spaces in Carson Valley that you can visit, and you can see vegetation and the natural place that it should be like,” said Jessica Gardner. “You get to see the mountains. You get to see the river. It’s a really great place to be.”
The final act for Pollinator Month will be recognizing the winners of the Douglas County Public Library’s Lego contest that focused on the topic.
