What is so great about pollinators? Well, to start, pollinators are the worker bees (pun intended) of our gardens, farms and orchards. According to the National Wildlife Federation, bees "pollinate both our crops and plants, providing us with one-third of the food we eat."
If you have a pollinator-friendly garden, you can celebrate Pollinator Month! According to the National Wildlife Federation:
"Certify your habitat during Pollinator Month and BEE COUNTED towards the Million Pollinator Garden Challenge!
Anyone can create a welcoming haven for local wildlife. Turning your yard, balcony container garden, schoolyard, work landscape, or roadside greenspace into a Certified Wildlife Habitat® is fun, easy, and can make a lasting difference for wildlife."
