The Embassy of the United States of America will open an educational outdoor exhibition “Pollination Investigation” on the green area between Ehte and Kolde streets in Tallinn on Friday, September 15 at 1 p.m. as part of the Tallinn European Green Capital project “The Pollinators Highway.”
“I can’t think of a better place to host this exhibit. The Pollinator Highway is a fantastic initiative by Tallinn European Green Capital to preserve species-rich, pollinator-friendly communities, and we are pleased to partner to highlight the actions we can all take to protect our planet,” said U.S. Ambassador to Estonia George P. Kent.
Consisting of fourteen modules, the exhibition introduces pollinators and highlights their importance in promoting global food security, biodiversity, and a healthy environment. The exhibition was created by experts from Smithsonian Gardens, the Smithsonian landscape and horticulture exposition, which is the largest museum complex in the world. Since 2021, the exhibition has toured to the Tallinn Botanical Garden, Tartu Loodusmaja garden, and in various educational institutions in Viljandi, Räpina, and Pärnu.
The exhibition, which is in English, Estonian, and Russian languages, will be at the Pollinator Highway until the end of October. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
