For local ( Massachusetts native plants ) the Massachusetts Wildflower Society and their Nasami Farm Nursery and Garden shop http://www.newenglandwild.org/.

A you tube video of a Bumblebee Buzz-Pollinating a flower.  The last three flowers on the video are pepper, eggplant and tomato flowers “beeing” Buzzed-Pollinated by a sonicating bumblebee .  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rMvQSx2429U

An hour long video by a professional with the Xerces Society discussing pollinator conservation. http://www.grownativemass.org/programs/eveswexperts/kgill   IMHO the person presenting has excellent presentation skills and makes it entertaining.
