Participate in The Bee Project during this year's Iowa City Climate Fest, September 18-23, 2023. Each day will feature a different way to learn about climate change and what humans can do protect the environment.

Thursday, September 21, will feature a series of events focused on pollinators. 

  • Enjoy some arts and craft at the Iowa City Public Library (123 South Linn Street) related to pollinators
