Bumble Bee and Purple Cone Flower Pollinators and creating Pollinator Habitat

Pollinators are vital to ecosystems and crop production. Butterflies, bees, wasps, and moths are some of our pollinators. However, populations of pollinators have been declining recently for a variety of reasons. One thing you can do to help is create pollinator habitat!

The Board of Soil and Water Resurces have lots of information on creating a pollinator garden. They also create a new program, called Lawns to Legumes aimed at increasing pollinator habitat. This programs offers grants for pollinator gardens to be planted.
