You can do your part to preserve and protect pollinators by providing a suitable habitat (diverse plantings of native species), protecting bee nest sites and reducing pesticide use. You can also announce your interest and commitment to pollinators with a handsome sign that tells passers-by that there is a purpose and plan to your landscape. See the Xerces Society website for an opportunity to purchase a Pollinator Habitat sign. The bees will thank you!
This durable habitat sign measures 9" by 12".
