In honor of National Pollinator Week, check out this online presentation focusing on the incredible ways in which plants communicate with animals. Discover amazing strategies of plants, the colors that pollinators see, and ways in which both plants and animals can help or deceive each other. Did you know that a bee's eye view is extremely different from what we see, and from what a bird sees? Participants will find that taking a much closer look at flowers can open up an entire hidden world that is more complex and fascinating than one ever imagined. Presented by Park Naturalist Jen Bulava. Available at the link provided here or on or Programs and Events Page.
