Prairie Pollination

Creator(s): The Manitoba Museum

The prairies are one of the most endangered ecosystems in Canada. However, they provide essential habitat for many of the insects that pollinate our crop plants. Take the virtual tours to see some of these amazing prairies and learn about the research that pollination scientists are conducting. Explore the biodiversity of this area by viewing photographs and illustrations of wildflowers and their pollinators. Information and images of the endangered plants and pollinating butterflies and moths that live in the prairies are a highlight of this exhibit. An extensive list of prairie parks and preserves combined with the PlantSpotting app will help prairie explorers record their own plant sightings and photographs. Lesson plans for teachers of both primary and secondary schools related to this website can be found online at the Virtual Museum of Canada Teachers' Centre.
