Be A Hero

The Mid-Atlantic region is home to a remarkable range of pollinators, including nineteen bumble bee species and thousands of species of native bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, hover flies, flower visiting beetles, wasps and moths. Several important pollinators are threatened for many reasons – one of which is habitat loss due to dramatic declines in native plant communities needed to support these animals. 
Pollinator-friendly gardens and landscapes play an essential role in the effort to revive the health of bees, butterflies, birds, bats and other pollinators across the country. Planting flowering plants and trees will increase nectar and pollen sources and thus improve the health and numbers of these pollinator populations.
Go to the following web site to see what you can do to help preserve these essential pollinators.
