Grades 3-5 | Quinta Mazatlan presents Pollinator Gardens – Attract Birds and Butterflies and Support our Ecosystem – Apr 12, 2019 11:10am EST

The connection between plants and animals is something we all learn about in school. Many people can take tests, pass tests and memorize the facts about the lifecycle of a butterfly, or the food chain and food web. But for sone reason, an understanding of the relationship between insects and plants does not seem to sink in. Thus lesson works to explain why it matters to plant natives in a garden and it hopes to inspire YOU to “take action”.
