What Can I Do?
Your generous support will be used to purchase habitat restoration materials including plants, compost, tools, equipment for swarm removals, and hives to house new bees. The donations will be used to preserve and create a pesticide free sanctuary to help honey bees flourish.
Volunteers are essential to helping in restoration efforts. From the smallest scale to city park or large plot operations. They are the muscle and the “boots on the ground” first hand efforts to restoring much needed pollinator habitat and corridors.
Chemicals and pesticides such as roundup and weed killers are poisonous to all pollinators and can carry toxins into the pollen grains of dandelions and other flowers that grow in that same area from residual contamination.
As well as providing protection, the leaves offer a safe place for moths and butterflies to lay their eggs which will overwinter and emerge next spring. Insects are a critical part of the ecosystem. They are an important food source for birds, reptiles and other animals. Helping our Insects in any way we can means helping to support a healthy ecosystem.
