Pollinators play an important role in our ecosystems. Bees, flower flies, butterflies, hummingbirds and other pollinating creatures ensure fruit and seed production for flowering plants and are a crucial link in food webs. To support pollinators, you can plant and protect the native plants they depend on by creating and preserving the habitat they need right in your own backyard. In addition, creating habitat for pollinators will provide you with countless hours of delight as you experience the amazing array of pollinators and wildlife your yard attracts!
The Pollinator Garden and Maritime Forest Trail educational signs and programs were sponsored by an environmental and sustainability grant from Dominion Energy.
