Fundraiser for Exhibit Development
Thursday, October 5, 2017
Thanks to everyone for attending Trivia Night at Lakewoods Resort!
If you weren’t able to make it you can still support our Bee Exhibit!
Next year’s exhibit is about Bees…and we’re building a hive!
The CNHM is excited about next year’s exhibit and planning is underway to incorporate a live bee hive at the Museum to help educate the major impact these small creatures have on our environment and the danger they are facing!
Why Are Bees So Important?
Bees are responsible for pollinating about one-sixth of the flowering plant species worldwide and approximately 400 different agricultural types of plants…
Bees Provide Sources of Food:
Some foods that would no longer be available if bees ceased pollinating: broccoli, asparagus, cantaloupes, cucumbers, pumpkins, blueberries, watermelons, almonds, apples, cranberries, and cherries…and honey of course.
Bees Beautify the Plant:
By keeping flowers pollinated, bees perpetuate floral growth and provide attractive habitats for other animals such as insects and birds.
You can still support next year’s exhibit!
Consider underwriting various elements of our exhibit. Planning is still in the early stages, but we are striving to build an engaging and vibrant exhibit!
