Event Description: 

Learn about the relationship between pollinators and flowers!  Different shaped flowers are often hosts to specific types of pollinators; this demonstrates that the two species co-evolved together to both get what they want. But flowers are part of the ecosystem in other ways too; they are consumed by herbivores, or serve as a shelter or protection for some insects and animals.  Some flowers help predators camouflage, so they can strike unsuspecting pollinators at any moment.  Learn all about the life that flowers provide with Connecticut Conservation Ambassador Michael Grady.
