Visit the Tulsa Zoo’s Pollinator Plant Sale every Saturday and Sunday in May at the zoo’s gift shop, Meerkat Market. You can purchase various plant species for your garden at home, so you can attract pollinator species. Pollinators, such as butterflies, hummingbirds, bees, are extremely important to the well-being of many plants and crops, so it’s important to provide them with necessary resources.
All plants are in pots and will be sold for $3.50 each (member and employee discounts do not apply). A specific quantity of each plant will be available for sale each weekend and when that quantity is sold there will be no more available until the next weekend. Plants will not be held for customers during their visit to the zoo. All plants may be planted in full sun locations and almost all require very little watering after becoming established.
