Lowe, Leitch and Ahrens are Rangers within the Homegrown National Park project and use their respective backgrounds in art, apiculture and education to spread their message.
Anthophila (Latin: Antho = flower + phila = love) is an intimate look at the world from a bee’s eye view. This interactive exhibit renders the microscopic forage terrain of the honey bee to a scale that is larger than life, inviting visitors to engage in a sensory and tactile exploration of the wonders of honey bee pollination.
