Celebrate pollinators Sept. 7 at Tidewater Farm 

University of Maine Cooperative Extension and Falmouth Land Trust will host a pollinator day 2–4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 7, at the University of Maine Gardens at Tidewater Farm, Farm Gate Road, Falmouth.

This free, public event features hands-on activities focused on the vital role pollinators play in the food system as well as information about how to support pollinator populations. 

UMaine Extension Master Gardener Volunteers will lead tours and the Biodiversity Research Institute staff will highlight birds and bats as pollinators. A scavenger hunt and drawing contest will be offered, as will local honey-thyme ice cream.
