Meet the Pollinators

There are many different types of pollinators in Massachusetts, from native bees to beetles to hummingbirds. Pollinators help plants reproduce by spreading a powdery material called pollen among flowers to help them reproduce. Animals, primarily bees, pollinate most plants that produce fruits and vegetables. Pollinators don’t just help plants; they also rely on the plants provide them with energy-rich nectar and protein-rich pollen helping them to survive and reproduce. We rely on pollinators for our food as they rely on the plants for their nourishment.  Click here for information on Pollinator Pathway Cape Cod.
