Celebrate Pennsylvania Native Species Day and World Bee Day at Snipes Farm

Native Plant Sale! Pollinator Garden Starter Kits!

Saturday, May 18, Rain or Shine!

9:30 am - 1:00 pm

Meet at the Big Red Barn

We are celebrating our native plant species and our bees! Pennsylvania Native Species Day is May 16 and World Bee Day is May 20. So, let’s celebrate them all on Saturday, May18! This is a free event. There is no cost to attend.

They deserve it because they do so much for our planet. Sponsored by Snipes Farm & Education Center and the Morrisville Environmental Advisory Council (EAC).

We will have talks on bees, deer resistant native plants, and composting. We will have information tables from your local environmental councils, Kona Compost, Morrisville Bird Town PA and Spearhead Project Earth.

Have a question about gardening, composting, streams, or stormwater? Master Gardeners and Master Watershed Stewards will be on hand to answer them.

There will also be crafts, walks, and a NATIVE PLANT SALE!  Would you like to start your own pollinator garden?  At this event, you will be able to purchase, for just $12, a "starter garden" that will attract bees, butterflies and other pollinators essential to our food production.
