NPGN-Logo-4c-2-425x156Pollinators are responsible for 1 out of 3 bites of food eaten each day, but their presence is declining due to lack of habitat. Providing native landscaping in our yards and municipal green spaces will increase more nectar and pollen sources. Providing native flowering plants and trees will help improve the health and numbers of native pollinators — bees, butterflies, birds, bats and many others across the country.
