The Bee Conservancy is popping up at the Oculus Greenmarket Tuesday, September 20th during NYC Climate Week!

At this event, there will be free, family-friendly activities including:
- “Always Bee Learning” tools for kids: coloring sheets, microscopes, specimens, books, and more.
- Bee “Flash Cards” that help you distinguish bees from each other, as well as wasps and other look-alikes.
- Opportunities to engage in community science right in New York City with the iNaturalist app.
More about this event:
- This takes place outdoors at a farmer’s market.
