Pollinator Habitat

The main purpose of the ‘Pollinator Habitat’ is to provide students with an outdoor ‘ecosystem’ that specifically attracts the nectar feeding organisms’ found in southwestern PA. This ‘Pollinator Habitat’, like the ‘Woodland Habitat’, can be used by teachers as an additional teaching tool for not only science but other disciplines as well. With valuable habitat rapidly disappearing due to suburban sprawl, finding good quality natural areas for students to study nature is difficult. Having this ‘Pollinator Habitat’ eliminates time and cost involved in busing children to parks or nature reserves to observe and study such nectar feeding organisms as butterflies, hummingbird moths, honey bees, and even hummingbirds.

   Not only does this “Pollinator Habitat’ benefit the students but greatly benefits the local organisms as well by providing additional food/water/shelter/space they need for survival.
