Pollinator Week

Pollinator Week

Did you know that over 300 species of fruit rely on bats for pollination? This camp is all about pollinators from bats and bees to birds and butterflies. Join us as we use the garden as an outdoor classroom to learn about the different pollinators we have in the gardens. We will play games, explore the garden, and will have playtime in the children's garden.

June 1-5, 2020; 8:30 a.m.- 3:30 p.m.
Cost: Garden member $100/nonmember $150

UT Gardens Summer Camps are moving online for 2020. Each day of camp will begin with one hour online using Zoom. This will allow campers to check in with each other and learn about the activities planned for the day. We will end each day with a one hour Zoom meeting for campers to share what they worked on and learned during the day. Campers will have the opportunity to work collaboratively with other participants throughout the day via online platforms such as Zoom. We will provide Garden Camp Kits with supplies and materials for activities. Parents will be able to pick those kits up using no contact procedures at UT Gardens. Please read below for information regarding camp fees.

Note on camp interactions: The online camp sessions will provide the opportunity for the kids to speak to other children and interact with them in a way that is safe during this time of very little contact with those outside our homes. Throughout each week, the kids will be able to have meetings with each other to check in and work on projects that they will present to their families and/or one another.

In the event that you do NOT want images of your child publicized, you MUST provide written notice to our Education Director prior to the start of camp.
