The late, great American band Starlite Desperation had a song, "I Lost my Bees," which like most prophetic visions prefigured bee-mania by months, if not years. Bees play a part in keeping us healthy, happy, and fit, insofar as keeping plants blooming and local honey on the ready for our winter tea needs. And as their habitats shrink, their population shrinks. Now, it's up to us to prop up their little yellow worlds with some extra food-sources and chill-out spots. [Organizer's description:] Pollinators help plants complete their life cycle by moving pollen from one plant to another. This is a very important process if you like any of the following things – chocolate, fruits, ice cream, and even tequila! Celebrate these miracle workers during Pollinator Palooza. Talk to local bee keepers, learn about the different types of pollinators, and check out our pollination stations! Don’t miss the ladybug release at the Butterfly Garden near the John P. McGovern Children’s Zoo. This event is included in your paid Houston Zoo admission and is free for Zoo members.
