Why Help Bees, Butterflies & Other Pollinators?
More than 80% of flowering plants species and one-third of our foods rely on animals for pollination.
Due to habitat loss, pesticides, diseases, and parasites, pollinators are in trouble, but you can help!
Plant a wide variety of native plants that bloom from spring to fall to supply essential nectar and pollen.
Avoid or minimize pesticide use.
Buy organic foods as much as possible.
