Flandrau Pollinator Exhibit

This park is among 10 state parks which have installed educational pollinator plantings and exhibits. Below is a transcript of the audio connected with the exhibit:.

Hello, I am Scott Kudelka, the Area Naturalist. Pollinators are valuable to all of us. They bring us beautiful wildflowers like those growing here. Look around to see some of the native wildflowers that attract pollinators which they need to survive. You will notice how some have different colors and bloom at different times. Hear the buzzing of native bees. Go search for other native wildflowers including in your own community. Think about planting some native wildflowers and other native plants in your own yard to attract pollinators. Do this and be a superhero.
