Pollinator Garden Launch

 

Join us for the launch of our new Pollinator Garden!

How do plants reproduce? Pollination! Most plants need help moving pollen from one flower to another in order to create new seeds. Though wind can help, birds and flying insects also play an important role. With the new Pollinator Garden, in partnership with Swingle, you can get a view of how birds, insects and plants work together to thrive. The garden’s location near Bird World was purposely planned to highlight the important relationship between birds and plants—each depend upon one another for survival. In addition to a food source, plants provide shelter to wildlife. Approximately 2,500 square feet in size, the garden will showcase a beautiful water feature that will serve as a water source for birds and insects.
