Pollinators are animals that move pollen from male structures (anthers) of flowers to the female structure (stigma) of the same plant species. The movement of pollen within a plant species is vital to that species to continue to produce and produce as well as it can during the season. Pollinators include many insects such as bees, butterflies, beetles and flies, and even some birds and bats. About 300,000 species of flowering plants worldwide require animal pollinators.
In order to support the pollinators of the lower desert, a pollinating garden was created, which in turn supports the agricultural need of pollinators for the surrounding area.
