Pollinator Week with Lincoln Public Schools

Monday, June 20, 2022Sunday, June 26, 2022

Save the date! Pollinator Week is a 7-day international celebration. Here in Nebraska, we have a special effort to promote and share our love and excitement for pollinators. Each year, Nebraska Game and Parks hosts "Nebraska Pollinator Week", recruiting interested organizations across the state to register and host an event during this fun week.

Full list of events are coming!

We would love to utilize Master Naturalists to assist with some upcoming events this spring and summer. We are looking for folks who work well with children in groups.

The first events are in April/May:

National Children's Picture Book Day (special LLT) with Bruce the Bear Costume and honey/bees

Saturday, April 2, 10:30-11:30 a.m. at Walt Library

Sunday, April 3, 1-2 p.m., at Eiseley Library

We would love for someone to do a short presentation (10-15 minutes) about bees for kids aged 3-8 as part of a special storytime about bears (and bees).

Very Hungry Caterpillar Costume and Butterfly release

Sunday, May 1, 1:00 p.m., BMPL

We will be doing a butterfly release that day. Again we need someone to do a short presentation, geared towards the 3-8 age group about Nebraska butterflies.

Summer Reading Challenge events Pollinator week

Tuesday, June 21, South Library 10:30 a.m.

Tuesday, June 21, Anderson Library, 1:30 & 2:30 p.m.

Wednesday, June 22, Williams Library, 10:30 a.m.

Wednesday, June 22, 1:30 & 2:30 p.m. Gere Library

Thursday, June 23, 1:30 & 2:30 p.m. Eiseley Library

Thursday, June 23, Bethany Library 2:30 p.m.

These will be longer presentations (30-45 minutes) about pollinators sand their importance in the ecosystem. These will be mostly school-age children but there will be some preschool-age kids. These groups can be anywhere from 25 kids at a small library, to 200 at our larger libraries.

Thanks in advance for any assistance you can give us on this.
