Join us at Central Community College-Grand Island for our first annual pollinator festival. Our speakers and vendors will share information about pollinators and the plants that support them; vendors will have products available for purchase. Visit with CCC staff for grant information on community pollinator gardens. This is a family-friendly, fun event.
