san franciscoNatural Nectar

Just like us, pollinators can be picky about the food they eat. Pollinators sip a sweet liquid, or nectar, from flowers and in return take pollen to other flowers, which helps the flowers make seeds and fruit. As they travel from flower to flower, sipping nectar, they collect and spread pollen wherever they go. Pollinators do such an important job fertilizing flowers that flowers create nectar just to attract pollinators!
