Pollinators are everywhere! They play a vital part in our world’s ecosystem, and are an incredibly varied group.
Amazing Pollinators is a visually-stunning, game-based, role-play adventure immersing audiences in the colorful and diverse world of pollinator/plant relationships.
Developed in collaboration with the Florida Museum of Natural History and the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation, the exhibit weaves fascinating stories with urgent messages about pollinators, the critical work they do, and their importance to people and planet.
Supported in part by the York County Arts Commission
