Wolfberries are important food sources for many animals. In the spring when they flower, bees and butterflies drink the nectar. In the late spring and early summer, migrating and resident birds eat the small red fruits. Several of the stands of wolfberries were planted by local high school students, who collected the seeds, grew the plants at their school, and then transplanted them into the park once they were large enough.
