Bees, bats and butterflies all have one thing in common — they are pollinators! Pollination is a process that is imperative to the success of nearly all-terrestrial life on earth. Humans need healthy pollinator populations to support our food system and our economy. If we lost pollinators, we’d also lose the habitats that are unique and special to the places we live and visit!

Planting pollinator gardens and educating those around you about the importance of pollinators can help protect these essential species and reverse trends of population decline. Check out the following resources, activities, and inspiration for teaching about pollinators!
