The Birds and Bees Festival will be taking place in conjunction with Arrow Rock’s long standing Garden Show, which typically attracts several hundred visitors. The Birds and the Bees is a natural outgrowth of Garden Show, and we hope to have many booths, activities, informational sessions and games for all ages that showcase Missouri conservation. These will be spread out all down Arrow Rock’s Main Street and at the Arrow Rock State Historic Site Visitor Center.
Some of our most desired booths/activities are:
Live native animals
Hands on activities/demos
Educational workshops - for example: bird ID seminars, plant ID hikes
Educational booths - for example: native plants, pollinators, beekeeping
Nature games/activities for kids
Food - locally grown/conservation-oriented food
Vendors - those who wish to sell nature-related items with a conservation message (for-profit vendors have to agree to Arrow Rock’s contract)
