More than 4,000 species of native bees provide a free, often overlooked service in our gardens, parks and open spaces. Whether it is the food we eat, the fibers we use, or the ability to sustain plant communities, pollinators are vital to our existence. Native plants are at the heart of a pollinator-friendly garden, providing food and host plants to pollinators. Join Master Gardener Greg Gnatt and learn how to create a beautiful pollinator garden that will entice beneficial pollinators, such as bees, butterflies, beetles, and moths, into your landscape.
