4-H Pollinators

Inside the fascinating world of the insects and animals that keep the Earth alive. 

About the Activities

Take a look outside: Many of the trees and flowers you see exist because of the insects and animals that transfer pollen from one plant to another. These pollinators are an essential link in nature. From ants to bees, butterflies to hummingbirds, pollinators lead to healthy crops, food, medicines, and more.

Learn more about these fascinating animals as you make simple and fun crafts with supplies you have at home. Don't forget to take the quizzes and see if you have the Flower Power to become a Pollinator Pro!
