Habitat Details
Wildlife habitat loss and endangered pollinators has inspired me. EVERY property owner has the opportunity and responsibility to make a difference in restoring natural habitats. That includes farmers, gov. lands, businesses, schools, parks, private land owners, etc. Need MORE native plants, trees, wildflowers... not less.
Comments
Just have FUN building & maintaining your habitat. Keep it natural. You'll see how much the pollinators appreciate what you're doing for them (and us!).
