Pollination sensation at Twin Lakes

Published 8:20 am Thursday, April 14, 2016

Spring is here, and with it comes that odd yellow dust that seems to cover everything and make people sneeze. That dust, of course, is pollen. Despite being an annoyance at times, pollen plays a key role in nature, and is a reason flowers sprout around this time of year.

On Saturday at 2 p.m., bring the family to join Ranger Kevin Koons at Twin Lakes State Park as he teaches tactics plants have developed in order to reproduce and spread.

Dress appropriately for the weather, as the program will be given outdoors. The program will be meeting at the interpretive circle near the concession stand. Contact the park office for more information at (434) 392-3435.
