BENEFITING: RED WOLF COALITION

EVENT DATE: Sep 20, 2012

THE STORY:

           WHAT DO RED WOLVES AND POLLINATORS HAVE IN COMMON?

                                              HERE'S THE BUZZ!

The Red Wolf Coalition's new Red Wolf Exhibit will include a Pollination Garden and an interpretive kiosk so visitors and program participants can learn about the mutual benefits that wildlife and plants derive from one another. Red wolves, bees and butterflies go hand-in-hand (or wing-in-paw!) in Red Wolf Country. Plants are essential to a healthy ecosystem, and the rich community of pollinators (bees, butterlies and hummingbirds) benefit from the food resources of coastal North Carolina's native plants.

What Is Pollination?

Pollination occurs when pollen grains from a flower's male parts (anthers) are moved to the female part (stigma) of the same species. Most plants depend on pollinators to move the pollen from one flower to the next. Others rely on wind or water. Plants produce nectar to attract pollinators. As the pollinators move from flower to flower collecting nectar, they are also moving pollen. 

Why Are Pollinators Important?

Pollinators are nearly as important as sunlight, soil and water to the reproductive success of over 75% of the world's flowering plants. They are crucial to the production of most fruits, nuts and berries on which people and wildlife depend.

Here is what we CAN NOW GET to make the Red Wolf Pollinator Garden an educational showpiece!

  • A water system includiing 3 rain barrels MADE OF RECYCLED MATERIALS and soaking hoses to make the garden self-watering and low maintenance
  • An mixture of colorful plants and flowers of different shapes and sizes to attract a wide array of pollinators
  • Mulch - lots of it!
  • Name plates for the plants
  • installation of 3 interpretive kiosks made by an Eagle Scout

This awesome addition to the Red Wolf Coalition's Red Wolf Exhibit will provide a rich and colorful habitat for pollinators and will be another fun and exciting way to help us teach about red wolves and their habitat.
