The next Sunday with a Scientist program at the University of Nebraska State Museum will explore insect pollinator conservation. The program, “Buzz about Bees and Pollinator Conservation” is 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. June 22 at Morrill Hall.

Participants will learn about bees, butterflies, moths, beetles and flies, and how to adapt their home and community landscapes to boost populations. Hands-on activities will include bee nest box building and interactive mobile apps including “Pollination to Plate.”

The program is a series of presentations that highlight the work of scientists, while educating children and families on a variety of topics related to science and natural history. Presenters share scientific information in a fun, informal way through demonstrations and activities, or by conducting science on site.

Sunday with a Scientist typically takes place 1:30-4:30 p.m. on the third Sunday of each month.

For more information on the program, including upcoming topics, go to or call 402-472-264. Regular admission is $6 for adults (19 and over), $3 for children (5-18 years), free for children 4 and under and $13 for families (up to two adults and children). UNL staff, faculty and students are admitted free with NU ID during all regular hours. Parking is free in front of the museum.
