Be sure to experience the stunning new Pollinator Path during your next visit to Liberty Science Center! It’s here as part of our Wild About Animals springtime celebration through May 9.
Built in only seven days, the Pollinator Path is made of a slippery, polymer surface (similar to our Sock Skating Rink back in the winter).
As you glide – or “fly” – through the Pollinator Path, you’ll learn all about pollinators such as bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds.
For example, did you know honey bees collect both nectar and pollen to eat?
Or did you know adult butterflies eat nectar from flowers, but are also attracted to sodium-rich liquids? If they land on you, it's quite possible they're attracted to the salt on your skin!
Or how about that hummingbirds visit up to 3,000 flowers each day, drinking up to two times their body weight in nectar?
The Pollinator Path also contains actual live plants that are being grown for our outdoor pollinator garden. There are ten species of plants being grown.
