Join your DCNR Park Naturalist at the Ridley Creek State Park Pollinator Garden to learn about the importance and diversity of pollinators in nature including butterflies, moths, bees, hummingbirds, bats and other species that help plants produce the seeds and fruits which feed most wildlife including people. While many insects such as our beautiful butterflies and moths nectar on a variety of flowers, most are host specific to certain plants on which they lay their eggs and their larvae feed. Invasive weeds compete with our native plants, thus limiting habitat for our native insects that are the foundation of many food chains. Protecting native wildlife habitat, using less chemicals and planting more backyard and schoolyard habitats are great ways that we can all do our part to help nature throughout the world. Registration not required.
