Did you know Dickinson wrote around 100 poems about bees?
Join us this year at the Emily Dickinson Museum on July 20 for our Annual Children’s Circus, a family-friendly event that celebrates the role these important pollinators played in Dickinson’s poetry and in our lives today.
Learn more about the continued importance of pollinators with fun games, crafts, live music and a live demonstration hive. The Children’s Circus is free and open to all. Stop by between noon and 3:30 p.m. to see what all the buzz is about!
