Embrace native wildflowers and eliminate pesticides
Loss of healthy habitats has led to biodiversity loss in our urban and rural landscapes. The good news is that anyone that owns or manages any green space, however large or small, can build healthy landscapes to support our essential native pollinators. We encourage people to incorporate native wildflowers that bloom throughout the growing season, convert part of their lawn to a pollinator-friendly habitat, and eliminate the use of toxic pesticides that harm people, pets, and pollinators. These actions will help support the widest array of beneficial bees, butterflies, and birds. – People and Pollinators
