With the recent decline of the European honey bee, it is more important than ever to encourage the activity of other native pollinators to keep your flowers beautiful and your grains and produce plentiful. In Attracting Native Pollinators, you’ll find ideas for building nesting structures and creating a welcoming habitat for an array of diverse pollinators that includes not only bees, but butterflies, moths, and more. Take action and protect North America’s food supply for the future, while at the same time enjoying a happily bustling landscape.

The Xerces Society offers a complete action plan of protecting these industrious animals by providing flowering habitat and nesting sites.
Providing Healthy Habitats for Pollinators:
Supports bountiful farm and garden harvests
Maintains healthy plant communities
Provides food for other wildlife
Beautifies your landscape with flower plants
