Pollinators are crucial to the health of the planet from the food we eat to the cycle of life. Unfortunately, native pollinators are declining, and that brings up lots of questions for scientists to study—including Northwestern University graduate student Marie Faust. Learn more about native pollinators found here in Illinois, the science behind pollination, and why it’s important. Then make your own native bee "home" with Marie and horticulturist Nancy Clifton to take home.
