Gardens at the National Museum of the American Indian
How do we protect the museum’s croplands from natural pests? Convergent lady beetles, better known as ladybugs, are a natural pesticide used by our groundskeepers to maintain the health of our gardens. Join experts from Smithsonian Gardens outside our museum on the National Mall to learn how to identify a ladybug and other fun insect and garden facts. Then place a few ladybugs on plants yourself.
This program is for visitors of all ages. Children should be accompanied by adult caregivers. Program subject to cancellation in case of inclement weather.
