Native pollinators play a vital role in maintaining a healthy ecosystem and food system. Attendees will gain an understanding of the intricate biodiversity of native pollinators, which have co-evolved with native plants. This webinar will discuss the steps of installing pollinator meadows, composed of herbaceous perennial flowering plants and native grasses. This diverse habitat not only supports pollinators, such as bees, butterflies, and beetles, but also other wildlife, such as birds! Pollinators significantly contribute to feeding birds in two main ways: First, through the act of pollinating flowers, seeds are formed and are eaten by birds. Second, the pollinators themselves can be a protein source for birds! About 9 in 10 bird species eat insects at some point in their life. So, whether it be through the conservation lens of birds, pollinators, or both – join us to learn about how native perennial meadows can contribute to wildlife diversity and abundance in your community.
