What: The 10th annual Pollinator Dinner will focus on the diverse foods that pollinators help to provide. Before dinner, guests can enjoy honeybee-pollinated beverages and a honey tasting while visiting exhibitor displays about pollinators, food, agriculture, gardening and habitat restoration.
The gourmet dinner buffet includes salads, sides, main courses and desserts prepared with ingredients provided by pollinators, such as almonds and walnuts, a variety of fruit and vegetables, herbs, honey and more.
After dinner, sip mead and enjoy a presentation by Ed Spevak, Ph.D., Curator of Invertebrates at the Zoo and Director of the Saint Louis Zoo WildCare Institute Center for Native Pollinator Conservation. Dr. Spevak will discuss conservation efforts of the Zoo and other organizations across the country. Learn what you can do to conserve pollinators and the habitats and foods that depend upon them. A portion of the proceeds from this event supports the Center for Native Pollinator Conservation.
