From early Spring until the last days of Fall, grasslands are an abundant source of vibrant wildflowers and swaying grasses. These plants provide pollen and nectar for pollinators such as hummingbirds, butterflies and bees. They are host plants for butterfly and moth larvae, and they attract insects and produce seeds for hungry birds that make grasslands their home. Look for dragonflies soaring above the waves of undulating grassland plants hunting smaller insects, including mosquitoes.
