Pollinator “gardens” can take many shapes: one can be a dedicated garden bed; a group of containers; or simply a sunlit edge of a natural area. It can be in your backyard, on your patio or balcony, in a cul-de-sac, or on the property of your facility, school, office, or place of worship. It can be the work of an individual or a group.
What makes them alike is the plant choice—not the size, quantity, or complexity of the planting. A pollinator garden doesn’t have to require a lot of space, investment, or time to create or maintain. By growing native plants that bloom spring, summer, and fall, you are rewarded with three seasons of visiting native bees and butterflies and the satisfaction of helping protect pollinators.
If you have a pollinator garden, please add it to the registry. The Plant for Pollinators registry recognizes those in our community who have taken steps to help protect pollinators and tracks the collaborative effort community-wide.
When you add a pollinator garden to the registry, you’ll receive a window cling in recognition and appreciation of your effort.
