Flower/Pollinator Scavenger HuntPosted by Mary Curran
Have you ever heard of cone flowers, lamb’s ears or yarrow? These are among the many flowers growing on our campus that attract a wide variety of pollinators. The first week of school, 3rd graders were challenged to identify annuals and perennials growing in the Monet Butterfly Garden and tally the number of bees and butterflies observed at each. The winning “pollinator attractor” was the Mexican Torch Sunflower. These brilliant, red-orange, 2″-3″ flowers are well known for attracting bees, butterflies and even hummingbirds!
