Aphrodite Fritillary at Heil Valley Ranch, Boulder County, 2013. By Amy Gosch

While the above fritillary butterfly got slightly confused about where nectar comes from, they’re usually great pollinators!

The most common thought-of pollinators are bees and butterflies.  But did you know that some moths, beetles, ants, wasps, and others are also pollinators?  And some vertebrates, such as hummingbirds and bats?

September is Pollinator Appreciation Month in Boulder County.  Click the link to find a list of the planned events and the schedule!  Take a tour, see a film, listen to some music, go to a lecture…there’s sure to be some fun and interesting information!
