Featuring special activities designed for both adults and young children, "Amazing Pollinators" is fun for the entire family.

Pollination is vital to life on Earth, but it isn’t easy! Slip into the wings of pollinators like bats, bees, beetles and butterflies and embark on an unforgettable survival quest in "Amazing Pollinators" – our visually stunning, playable maze adventure. Take on any or all of 48 survival missions from eight different species like the hibiscus bee, soldier beetle or ruby-throated hummingbird.

Explore immersive environments from around the world to discover the benefits pollinators provide to Earth’s ecosystems and the critical role they play in our food supply. Visit lotus flower blossoms in the rainforest, find saguaro cactus in the desert and watch moon flowers glow in the black light-illuminated Night room, just for nocturnal pollinators.

Play classic parlor games with a twist, like mason bee mancala and invasive species shuffleboard, to discover through play the nuanced relationships among pollinators, plants and humans. Learn how to help pollinators at home and in the community.
