Plant native flowering plants. Fuel their travels with a diverse buffet. Be sure to include milkweek - the only host plant for monarchs!
Don't mow, let the flowers grow. Taller grasses create habitat for pollinators. Not ready to stop mowing? Try letting a small section of your yard grow and watch for new visitors!
Use fewer pesticides and fertilizers. Reducing or eliminating chemicals on your lawn and gardens creates safer, healthier habitats for pollinators!
Remove invasive species. Invasive and non-native plants often bloom early, depriving native plants of sunlight and soil nutrients. Remove them so native plants can thrive, creating healthy habitats for pollinators!
