How to Help Native Pollinators

June 2023 (approx.)

Detailed Description

Planting butterfly-friendly plants in your yard or balcony (especially monarch favorites like native milkweeds), reducing harmful chemical use in your lawns and gardens, and “leaving the leaves” in the fall to protect overwintering pupae can all promote butterfly populations in your area!
