“Pollinator” is a term that has gained massive popularity over the past couple of decades as our knowledge and understanding of our ecosystems have grown. Unfortunately, many people only associate this term with popular pollinators, such as European honeybees and butterflies – but there’s so much more to the world of pollinators. Join us as we learn about native pollinators that don’t get the spotlight and how we can support these incredible movers and shakers in our gardens and landscapes.
