Check out this delightful video featuring a snow covered Pollinator Garden, from Manitou's beautiful Historic District!
We had an entourage of bees and butterflies and beekeepers and an original Emma with wings (Lynda). Special thanks to Rick and Judith for their lead and organization!
Thanks to everyone who helped us participate in the 25th Anniversary Emma Crawford Coffin Race on Saturday, October 26th, 2019!
We had a wonderfully colorful coffin to race amidst 70 others. It was a great opportunity to share our Pollinator Project’s purpose to promote and protect Pollinators with 10,0000 spectators and news media.
Join us in celebrating Emma Crawford every October!
Although There will be no races in 2020 due to COVID restrictions. Check out what Manitou Springs is doing to keep the memory of Emma alive in 2020 instead!
"In 1995, the Manitou Springs Chamber of Commerce started the first coffin races in the nation, in memory of a beloved member of Manitou Springs. In the years since, the races have grown into an often-copied-but-never-equaled Manitou Springs tradition."
