Finding pollinators in parks or your backyard is easy. You can also visit the website of our friends at the U.S. Forest Service to create some kid- and pollinator-friendly crafts like making your own perfume, building a native bee home, and recycling a soda bottle into a hummingbird feeder.
You can also plant a pollinator garden in your backyard or school using native plants. Just remember to:
- Go Native - plant native plant species
- Bee Showy - flowers should bloom in your garden throughout the growing season
- Bee Bountiful - plant big patches of each plant species
- Bee Diverse - plant a diversity of flowering species that supply an abundance of pollen and nectar
- Bee Chemical Free - limit or eliminate use of pesticides
