Pollinators in the CityPrinter Friendly Version
By now we’ve all heard the news: pollinators are in trouble. The White House has established a Pollinator Health Task Force to integrate the needs of bees and butterflies into land management plans. The Department of Transportation is seeking to increase pollinator habitat along highways. When it comes to the built-up cities, it’s up to urban residents to provide nectar, pollen, and nesting options. Every person with access to a sunny fire escape, patio, or tiny back yard plot can make a difference.
