Pollinators are animals that feed on flower nectar and pollen and in doing so, transfer pollen and fertilize plants. Pollination not only allows flowering plants to reproduce, but also to produce the seeds, fruits, nuts and other foods on which both wildlife and people rely. Naturalist David Mizejewski will introduce you to our pollinating wildlife and reveal why everything you think you know about bees is wrong. You’ll learn how to create a beautiful garden that supports pollinators are how to get it recognized by the National Wildlife Federation as a “Certified Wildlife Habitat.”
