BEE Kind | Compassion & Reciprocity: Lessons from the Pollinator Garden

Tuesday, May 9th | 10 – 11 AM

Highlands Biological Station’s North Campus (111 Lower Lake Road)

There are many lessons that can be gleaned from nature. Studies show that spending time in the natural world can raise our awareness of the other species that share this world with us and build our own capacity for compassion. By better understanding our role in the complex system of biodiversity we can not only bring peace and kindness to ourselves but create a ripple effect that increases our capacity to be kinder and more considerate of others. Bees and their flower partners demonstrate reciprocity and show how cooperation can lead to fruitful ventures. Join Sonya Carpenter on May 9th, at 10:00 am in the pollinator garden of the Highlands Biological Station to learn about reciprocity in the natural world.

Weather dependent.

Mental health awareness starts with kindness! This event is being held as part of BEE Kind, an initiative from the Counseling Center of Highlands and Highlands-Cashiers Health Foundation to raise awareness about the month of May as Mental Health Awareness Month.
