Did you know that cities are teeming with biodiversity? Insect pollinators like bees, butterflies, and beetles thrive in the city and help to sustain our local food systems and ecosystems. Come explore the flower gardens at Tufts University to learn how ecologically minded garden design can benefit both people and pollinators in the city. Guided by Tufts Pollinator Initiative experts, we’ll spy charismatic animals like bumble bees, green metallic sweat bees, monarch butterflies, and more!

The Tufts Pollinator Initiative works to build capacity for community-led urban pollinator conservation through habitat creation, nature education, and ecological research. Founded in 2019, TPI is run by enthusiastic Tufts University student scientists who are committed to raising awareness and inspiring support for pollinator conservation.
