Apr 4 - Smithsonian Museum Day: Please a Pollinator, Befriend a Beekeeper, and Explore History
April 4 (Saturday, 10:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.) Smithsonian Museum Day: Please a Pollinator, Befriend a Beekeeper, and Explore History
The Oberlin Heritage Center looks to the future as much as the past. Come lend a hand for an hour or two as OHC volunteers build and prepare pollinator-friendly plant beds on the museum property. The Heritage Center will provide some gardening tools and gloves; participants may also bring their own favorites (please mark with your name). Come inside and learn more about Oberlin’s early history through a self-guided tour of the 1866 Monroe House. All activities are free as part of Smithsonian Magazine’s annual Museum Day. Present the Museum Day Admission Card available at www.Smithsonianmag.com/museumday.
From 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., Tom Roth, a local beekeeper with more than 22 years of experience, will be on site to answer questions about bees and beekeeping.
Location: Oberlin Heritage Center grounds and Monroe House
