Attracting Pollinators to Your Garden

Who are the pollinators in your garden?  You might be surprised by the roles some garden insects play.

Additional Information

80% of the world’s flowering plants depend on pollinators, and every third bite of our food is insect pollinated. Yet pollinator populations face threats including habitat loss, overuse of pesticides, and climate change.  Learn ways that you can help to support their populations through practices at your home outdoor space and some recommended native plants for your garden.
