Pansies, Prickly Pears, and Pollinators with Lloyd Bennett

  • Helen Schuler Nature Centre (map)

Southern Alberta is home to several hundred kinds of plants which grow in the wild, plus there are many more ornamental and cultivated plants.  These plants come in many different sizes, shapes, and colours, and are found in every possible habitat.  Some of these plants are wind-pollinated, such as grasses, and a few reproduce using spores.  However, the vast majority of our plants rely on pollinators to help them reproduce.  Lloyd Bennett will introduce us to the spectacular variety of southern Alberta plants, and to the equally spectacular variety of insects that act as pollinators.
