Pollinator Week: Tuesday

The Pollinator Garden is growing! In May, we wrote about the lovely plants on the south walkway to the Boeing IMAX Theater, and now we have plants on both sides of the path!

Some of the new plants in the Pollinator Garden are nectar providers; others are host plants for native butterfly species. There is even a little area that we created to allow ground-nesting bees to build their homes.

So far, these plants are still small, and probably won’t attract huge numbers of pollinators till next year, but they are off to a good start! Very soon, you will smell honeysuckle and watch huckleberries ripen. Next, the buzz of bumblebees and the flutter of butterflies will (hopefully) grace the garden and bring smiles to our movie patrons.
