Manicured lawns are a desert for pollinators (and most wildlife). But you can make your yard or garden a pollinator paradise!
In spring, leave twig piles and bare ground. Come summer, let veggies bolt. Provide a source of water and don’t rake all the fall leaves. Build homes where pollinators can lay eggs or overwinter.
Chances are you’re already taking steps to help pollinators — bees (wild and honeybees), butterflies and birds. That’s great! Not sure? Check your actions against these tips.
