The Power of Pollinator Gardens

Posted August 10, 2023 In News

This sign was designed and installed by NPV’s team of Landscape Ecologists and shows native species to plant which will attract pollinators to our gardens. Pollinator Gardens are designed with flowering plants and shelter-providing vegetation to attract and support insect pollinators (bees, butterflies, etc.). To be considered a pollinator garden, it should provide various nectar producing flowers, shelter, larval host plants, and avoid the use of pesticides.

Did you know … Pollinator Gardens provide support to 90% of insects that rely on native plants for their overall life cycle development and 96% of birds who feed about 6,000 insects per brood.
