Bee a part of the BUZZ!

You probably know about bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds, but did you know that bats, beetles, and moths are also pollinators? Many can be found here at the Living Coast, fluttering around our Native Pollinator Garden. They play a vital role in our environment, from blooming flowers to the food we eat.  

Pollinators facilitate the reproduction of plants by transferring pollen from one flower to another, enabling fertilization and the production of fruits and seeds. Without pollinators, many foods we enjoy, such as fruits, vegetables, and nuts, would be non-existent. By supporting pollinators, we are ensuring our environment’s health and safeguarding our well-being.

In honor of Pollinator Week, we are raising $5,000 to help fund our community programs like Sunset Bat Hikes, Pollinator Talks, and Pollinator Discovery Tables, where we educate and inspire the public about these vital species.

Make a gift today to help us make a buzz-worthy future for pollinators!
