Pollinators and Pollination Strategies

Many plants depend on the assistance of a third party, usually an animal, to help them successfully

achieve pollination. How do plants entice visitors to their flowers, and then manipulate them to carry

pollen to another plant of the same species? Naturalist Mary Anne Borge will introduce you to some of

the many potential pollinators of native plants, including bees, flies, wasps, beetles and birds, and to the

strategies plants have evolved to achieve successful pollination by taking advantage of these flower

visitors. Indoor presentation followed by an outdoor hunt for pollinators.

This program will take place on Saturday, June 25 from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. The fee for Preserve Members is

$15. The fee for non-members is $20. Call to register by June 21.

Bowman’s Hill Wildflower Preserve is located at 1635 River Rd. (Rt. 32), just two and half miles south of

downtown New Hope, PA. For more information about programs at the Preserve visit www.bhwp.org.
