Pollinator Dot-to-Dots

In 2019, “Flying Flowers” teamed up with the River of Time Museum to bring awareness to the Fountain Hills Community about the extinction of Monarch Butterflies. Along with conserving monarchs, “Flying Flowers” discussed the importance of caring for local pollinators like hummingbirds and bats. Due to the hard work of these tiny creatures, flowers are able to produce many varieties of fruit and produce that we love to eat! Arizona is home to 18 different species of hummingbirds and 28 species of bats!
