EHS Pleasant Street Wildflower Project

You can tell just from the pano that our wildflower garden has changed significantly in a week. Sunday's frost started the process of hibernation, and many of the flowers still there have begun to wilt. But there are still plenty of pollinators around.

And many flowers escaped unharmed.

Many flowers look kind of sad, but there's still a kind of beauty in the change.

This is just about the exact same spot last week on the left, and now on the right.

Pollinator Factoid:

  • For migratory pollinators, such as bats, hummingbirds, and the monarch butterfly, the identification and protection of nectar corridors is important (Allen-Wardell et al., 1998). If nectar is unavailable anywhere along their migratory route at the time of migration, it could result in the death of part of the population (Buchmann and Nabhan, 1996). Nectar sources near areas where pesticides are sprayed may be tainted or, where herbicides are used, eliminated
  • At least 3 bat, 5 birds, and 24 butterfly, skipper and moth, one beetle and one fly species in the United States that are federally listed as endangered under the Endangered Species Act of 1973, as amended, are pollinators. It is unknown how many of the listed plants require pollinators. More on endangered pollinators.

These are just a few of the important facts regarding pollinators and pesticides, and more will follow. Remember, YOU really do make a difference out there, and your work at EHS genuinely is important to the planet.
