the butterfly effect

Imagine being hungry and not able to find a grocery store. Butterflies, hummingbirds, bats, moths and bees pollinate crops and most flowering plants, but it’s getting harder for these little guys to find food- their habitats are shrinking and getting further apart. That’s where you come in. Make your home or community more pollinator-friendly today. FYI, pollinators like to eat local, so check out wildflower.org, “native plants,” “plant lists” to find out what grows best in your area.

If you’re low on space, use containers for a pollinator snack stop. Start with one or two plants and see how it goes! Also, avoid insecticides when you can (duh).
