Have you ever wondered who the “pollinators” everyone is talking about are? While the European Honeybee gets a lot of attention, there are countless insects and animals that fulfill this important role. This presentation takes a close look at the pollinating animals that are native to this region and some of the flowers that they have evolved with and attract them. Some of the topics covered will include: What exactly is pollination and what is involved?, Pollination Syndromes, Host plant vs Food plant, Perennial Flower Forms and Diversities for enhancing pollinator habitat, and of course a nice introduction to of some of our local pollinators and native flora.
