Pollinators: keeping company with flowers

august 9 through october 4

This traveling exhibition explores the diversity of native California pollinators and their flowers through a series of vivid photographs. You might think it's only about bees, but there are many different native California insects that work to pollinate our gardens and crops. The exhibit takes a close look at California ecology through the lives of these pollinating species, their needs and the obstacles they overcome.

The exhibit features over 50 photographs of pollinators in wild and garden settings. Primarily taken by Northern California plantsman and naturalist John Whittlesey, these images vividly portray the intriguing lives of bees, butterflies, flies, and beetles. The exhibit aims to increase awareness and appreciation of the incredible beauty and diversity of pollinators in California.

Pollinators: Keeping Company with Flowers is a traveling exhibition from Exhibit Envoy developed by Jennifer Jewell and John Whittlesey.
