Did you know that pollinators are responsible for one out of every three bites of food we eat? Not only are they critical to our agricultural systems, pollinators also support healthy ecosystems that clean the air, stabilize soils, protect from severe weather, and support other wildlife. But as more forests and pastures become subdivisions, we are losing important habitat for native pollinators.
You can help pollinators thrive by adding native plants to your backyard. With the spring gardening season upon us, look for pollinator favorites like milkweed, coneflower, bee balm, and clustered mountain mint.
