Description: Explore how the shapes and colors of flowering plants are related to the pollinators they attract and how maintenance of a vibrant and diverse ecosystem includes keeping ‘pests’ as well as butterflies. After all, a world without ‘pests’ would also be a world without chocolate. The walk should help participants create an insect-friendly sustainable garden. We will see native flowers and a variety of bees, butterflies, flies and beetles. In addition, there will be a small collection of insects typical of this region to look at.
