In 2010, the U.S. Senate designated a week in June as “National Pollinator Week” to address the issue of declining pollinator populations. Pollinator Week has now grown to be an international celebration of the valuable ecosystem services provided by bees, birds, butterflies, bats, beetles and other small mammals. We invite you to join us in celebrating National Pollinator's Week from June 19-25, 2017!
One of the most rewarding experiences of gardening is knowing that you're making a positive contribution to your environment. Plants help purify the air, beautify our neighborhoods and provide food and habitat for local wildlife. However, the expansion of urban areas limits the habitat of local wildlife species, including birds, insects, frogs and other important members of our ecology.
By applying a few simple practices in your garden, you can provide a welcoming and safe habitat that will help sustain these lovely natural species.
