Parks for Pollinators

Local pollinators are critical to our ecosystems and food supply. As part of the National Parks for Pollinators campaign, organized by the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), the City of Redmond will host a fun challenge to see how many pollinator species can be documented at Farrel-McWhirter Park. 

Join us from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 16, to find and identify as many pollinator species as possible. The City of Redmond will host kids activities, give away seeds, and provide instructions on how to participate in the National Parks for Pollinators campaign.
