Bemidji State University, the Watermark Art Center, the Bemidji Parks and Recreation Department, the Mississippi Headwaters Audubon Society and Neilson Spearhead Center are collaborating for the fourth annual Monarch Butterfly Festival in Bemidji! The two week event includes art exhibits, art projects, garden tours, gardening advice and much more – all in the name of celebrating pollinators! We spoke with Erika Bailey-Johnson, BSU Sustainability Director, about the importance of monarchs and other pollinators, which plants attract and feed monarchs, and of course we discussed the many events that are part of this festival!
