When: Saturday, August 20th 10:30am – 2pm
Where: Checker Square

We are buzzing with excitement over Honey Bee Day. There will be live music, food trucks, up-cycling crafts for kids, giveaways and more!

We love bees —and all pollinators —at Baseline. As Colorado’s first pollinator district, we’re celebrating these tiny powerhouses, essential to our well-being and our planet’s health, on Saturday, August 20 from 10:30am – 2pm.

Make a beeline to Checker Square when Jeff & Paige gets things buzzing at 10:30 AM. The first 24 children on site will walk away with a special Baseline Bug Bag! Not to fret, we have gift bags for all our kiddos, you will need one for all the crafts and giveaways!  

At noon, roots-americana trio David Lawrence & The Spoonful picks up the beat until 2 PM. They provide the perfect soundtrack for this festive event, where you can learn about bees and beekeeping as well as all pollinators from experts at Butterfly Pavilion and the People and Pollinator Action Network. They will help explain the value of becoming a pollinator district, where thoughtful, sustainable community design increases and enhances habitat for pollinators.  Be sure to sign the pledge to be a Pollinator Safe Property to help do your part in the overall pollinator ecosystem.

Observe hive life up close thru an enclosed beehive, plus get the chance to hold, touch and see other pollinators such as butterflies, hissing cockroaches and a mealworm or two.  And help bring our Art Garden to life with the Broomfield Council on the Arts & Humanities.

Kids can have their faces painted and create upcycled crafts, like bee drinking stations and mason bee houses with our partners from Sustainable Broomfield.  Sign up to be a Citizen Scientist and learn how you can help actual scientists grow and preserve our pollinator friends.

With so much to see and do, you are sure to work up an appetite. Pick up lunch from What Would Cheesus Do? food truck. And top off the day with a scoop of cookie dough or ice cream Rebel Cookie Dough.
