CWCN Pollinator Festival

CWCN Display

Pollinator Link display

By: Michael Fox

The Pollinator Link® display was very popular at the Cubberla-Witton Catchments Network Pollinator Festival with a regular stream of visitors wanting to learn about gardens for birds, butterflies and bees, and claim a free pollinator plant donated by SOWN.

I also answered lots of questions for kids completing their pollinator quiz sheets or challenged them to see what was in the nest box. Parents asked if the glider in the box was alive but the sharp eyed kids just said “That’s a toy!”

Activities for kids were a big part of the Festival. My favourate was building decorative Backyard Bee Homes.

“Who says Australian native flowers are boring?”

Certainly not the Native Plants Queensland team who showed the real beauty our local flowers with their display.
