Pollination is the process of moving pollen from one plant to another, allowing flowering plants to reproduce. Most of these plants have animals to thank for this invaluable service. The Native Plant Garden at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum is visited by at least eight pollinators. Can you find them hidden in the in the letters below?
- Alfalfa Leafcutter Bee (A pollinator introduced to assist alfalfa production.)
- Goldenrod Crab Spider (A minor pollinator that eats major pollinators. Waits on flowers rather than moving among them.)

- Great Spangled Fritillary
- Western Bumblebee
- Bee Fly
