Denver Zoo Launches New Pollinator Pathway!

Pollinator Pathway photo by Denver ZooHow do plants reproduce? Pollination! Eighty percent of wildflowers depend on pollinators and one out of every three bites of food that you eat comes from a pollinated plant. To highlight how birds, insects and plants work together to thrive, Denver Zoo will launch a new Pollinator Pathway made possible by Swingle on June 25th. This garden will provide food, shelter and a water source for birds and insects. With 2,500 square feet of new wildlife habitat, Denver Zoo is demonstrating how to create a garden to support bees, butterflies and birds in an urban setting. But why stop there! 

The National Wildlife Federation (NWF) is partnering with Denver Zoo to provide an opportunity for all zoo visitors to create their own wildlife habitats where they live. NWF’s Certified Wildlife Habitat program provides guidance and resources to create a wildlife-friendly garden in people’s yard, balcony or planter. With just a few short steps, Zoo visitors can create a beautiful garden at home that helps restore habitat for pollinators. There’s nothing like seeing animals at the Zoo, but this partnership between Denver Zoo and NWF gives people the chance to bring home their passion for wildlife and help pollinators in the process.
