Join Dancing Oaks for the 2nd Annual Dancing Oaks Pollinator Festival on Saturday, June 22nd during National Pollinator Week. 10% of our proceeds on Festival day will be donated to The Oregon Flora Project.
Pollinators of all kinds – insects, birds, and mammals - are vital to our food production system and the vitality of our natural environments. As home gardeners, we can support pollinators by filling even a small corner of our gardens with plants that provide food and habitat for them.
The festival will include local food, educational activities for kids and grown-ups, and featured pollinator-friendly plants for sale & giveaway during the day.
