Pollinator's are a valuable part of the Park's ecosystem and essential for our gardens to thrive. Without them, we wouldn't have the colorful mosaic of flowers and plants that make Brooklyn Bridge Park so special.
In honor of National Pollinator Week, the Conservancy's Environmental Education Center has provided a handful of resources for you to celebrate at home, or when safely socially distancing in the Park. Explore our roundup of educational crafts, activities, and literature below.
The Conservancy's programming is reliant on private support. Given the new realities of COVID-19 and social distancing, gifts to the Conservancy's programming matter more than ever, and you can give by clicking here.
From the comfort of your home, explore Brooklyn Bridge Park flora and fauna! With photos, videos, and fun facts embedded in an interactive pollination map, there is something for all ages to discover and learn. Click here to access.
From our friends at the Honeybee Conservancy — check out their Abuzz Guide, a fun, educational magazine for kids to learn about the lives of bees and urban beekeeping. You can also check out other STEAM resources and lesson plans on their Education page.
