Help support Pollinators!
It's easy. From balcony garden to full-sized farm, all it takes to welcome pollinators to your landscape is the right plants and some habitat know-how. Pollinators respond with the musicP of little wings. They make your garden abundant--it's a great bargain!
The world of pollinators is larger than you can imagine. Among bees alone, the European honeybee we know is just one of 20,000 species worldwide, with 4,000 species in North America. Except for a handful of species, bees don't live in hives. They don't have queens or stores of honey to defend, so most native bees don't or won't sting.
Native bees help with garden pollination. Honey-bees, who are "generalist" pollinators, are not adapted to all flower types. Native bees have gained recognition as "super bees" for their role in pollinating crops. With honeybee populations at risk, and habitat for all pollinators shrinking, we need to support pollinators to sustain our planet. Find out how you can help, right outside your door.
