The Friends of Pennypacker Mills, in collaboration with the Penn State Extension Pennsylvania 4-H, are hosting a Pollinator Party at the historic site to kick off World Pollinator Week.

  • Our own beekeeper, Scott Famous, will be making a presentation that will include a bee box.
  • Don't miss the display on the front porch about the Thomas Meehan and sons landscaping design at Pennypacker Mills.
  • We will have three one-hour presentations by Penn State Extension members in our classroom building.
  • There will be several crafts available for the kids to do (with volunteer and parental supervision).
  • A number of pollinator-related organizations will be set up with tables of informative materials.
  • A small group of crafters will also be on hand with pollinator-related items for sale, and some will have additional craft opportunities for kids.
  • The Fitzwater Station food truck will be there as well!

Check back here for additional information and scheduling as we continue to develop this event. We look forward to seeing you there!
