How many types of pollinators can you name? Bees, butterflies, birds, beetles, and even bats play an important role in pollination. One out of every three mouthfuls of food we eat require pollinators. This includes apples, strawberries, avocados, vanilla, agave, bananas and almonds. How nuts is that?! Check out the WET Science Center’s Facebook or Instagram Monday through Saturday for a daily pollinator-related activity. Share with us a photo of your pollinator activity for a chance to win a hummingbird feeder!
