The Blue Hills are alive in many ways. We hear birds sing, see animal prints in the mud, and smell the beautiful flowers (and sneeze from their pollen). There is also so much life crawling in the grass or flying around us–I’m talking about the insects! Bugs are an important source of food for many species and they also take care of our natural world, by helping break down dead leaves and animals. On Blue Hills A-Live, Don Bennett discusses the threats to this important population and how we can help keep a healthy ecosystem by maintaining a healthy insect population.
