While pollinators may come in small sizes, they play a large and often undervalued role in the production of the food we eat, the health of flowering plants, and the future of wildlife. A decline in the numbers and health of pollinators over the last several years poses a significant threat to the integrity of biodiversity, to global food webs, and to human health, according to scientists. During the 2010-11 school year, PollinatorLIVE broadcast and webcast several educational programs, which are available as archived video on this web site. PollinatorLIVE is geared to grades 4 to 8.
Plant Materials Program of the USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service has provided a chart of native forbs/wildflowers and legumes that are useful in creating habitat for butterflies, bees, hummingbirds, and other important pollinators. More . . .
