Busy bees and other pollinators!

Have you heard that the honeybee population is shrinking? Maybe you've heard a friend talk about a pollinator garden and wanted to know more about how you can help bees and other pollinators thrive by starting your own. Find out more about how bees help our local gardens and our larger ecosystems by checking out the books below.

Pollinator Week has now grown into an international celebration of the valuable ecosystem services provided by bees, birds, butterflies, bats and beetles. Check out https://www.pollinator.org for more information.
