Howard library program promotes national campaign to plant for pollinators – The Baltimore Sun
You Can BEE One in a Million!
HCLS encourages you to join the national campaign to register a million public and private gardens and landscapes to support pollinators.
Pollinators are responsible for 1 out of 3 bites of food we take each day, and yet pollinators are at a critical point in their own survival. Many reasons contribute to their recent decline. We know for certain, however, that more nectar and pollen sources provided by more flowering plants and trees will help improve their health and numbers. Increasing the number of pollinator-friendly gardens and landscapes will help revive the health of bees, butterflies, birds, bats and other pollinators across the country.
The Million Pollinator Garden Challenge (MPGC) is a nationwide call to action to preserve and create gardens and landscapes that help revive the health of bees, butterflies, birds, bats and other pollinators across America. You can help HCLS spread the word by becoming part of our social media buzz!
