Welcome to Pollination Station!

"Just when the caterpillar thought her life was over....
she became a butterfly!"
WHO * WHAT * WHY
During our active duty days as a military family, our goal was to be a part of each community in which we lived. Although those communities changed, one thing was constant: we were always drawn to nature and environmental activities. Time constraints and new assignments hindered involvement at the levels we really desired, however. Not until our final move to NJ in 1999 were we really able to take on some new challenges.
For over 12 years, we were actively involved in wildlife rehabilitation and education at a local wildlife hospital and nature center, both as volunteers and employees. Working mostly with birds of prey and the occasional reptile or mammal, we were often found in festival type settings teaching about the environment and the impact humans have on wildlife. It wasn't long before we, as back yard beekeepers, incorporated honeybees into our displays with Monarch Butterflies and native pollinators soon following.
Military retirement behind us, we then struck out on our own as POLLINATION STATION. You can still find us at festival style events as well as at indoor venues presenting our well received interactive PowerPoint lectures.
We continue to foster wildlife orphans through the refuge during the summer months while also focusing on the importance of environmental preservation.
Enjoy your visit to our site and a sincere thank you to those who help with our programs, sponsor wildlife ambassadors and help support our mission.
I'm going to be a butterfly!
