Pollinatarium at University of Illinois

On a recent trip to meet the Species File development team I had the privilege of visiting the University of Illinois Pollinatarium. This is a great outreach project geared to educate school groups (and others!) about pollinators. Of course there is plenty about bees (see video below - they have live ones) but also information about birds, bats and other creatures.

This is certainly one of the most exciting outreach projects I've seen, and the enthusiasm of the staff for this resource is infectious.

I have put some photos on Flickr. If you can go I strongly encourage you do so.
