What else can I do at the festival?
Enjoy a stunning view of the high peaks from a historic greenhouse. Picnicking encouraged!

Cornell Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners will be on hand to answer your questions about planting and caring for your pollinator habitat.

Kids can take home free wildflower seed packets, participate in activity stations to learn about pollination, and get their faces painted with flowers, butterflies, bees, and other pollinators.

Join in a guided Grasslands Walk with local experts. 

Learn about composting to restore Adirondack soils, and how to use compost in your pollinator garden. 

This year, the Adirondack Pollinator Festival is teaming up with the Great Adirondack Birding Celebration hosted by our project partners Paul Smith’s VIC in conjunction with Heaven Hill and Uihlein Farm. ‘Bee’ sure to check out the birding events happening all weekend!

Thank You to Our Pollinator Festival Sponsors

Pollinator-Friendly Native Plant Sale

Thank you for supporting pollinator conservation efforts in the Adirondacks!

We are offering 15 varieties of native flowering plants, grown right here in the Adirondacks, to benefit pollinators that live here. These species are selected based on their presence in NY State, habitat value, and nutrition they offer to pollinators throughout the year.  Each plant has been carefully sourced or grown from seed to ensure that they have never come in contact with neonicotinoids (a class of insecticides that are harmful to pollinators). 

Preordered plants are to be picked up at Uihlein Farm Greenhouse, 281 Bear Cub Road, Lake Placid, NY on Saturday, June 1st between 9am - 3pm unless you make alternate arrangements with AdkAction.

Can a friend pick up my plants for me? Yes! We’ll send a reminder email prior to our plant pick-up day, including instructions for if you will have someone else picking up your plants. 

Can I pick up my plants at a different time? Contact [email protected] for times that someone will be at the greenhouse (near the date of the plant sale) to to assist you with your pre-order pickup.

Can I buy more plants when picking up my order? If we haven’t sold out, you will have the opportunity to buy more during our pollinator fest at the greenhouse on June 1st.
