    Native Pollinator Plants of Northern Michigan

    Native pollinators play a critical role in the health of our wild ecosystems and local agriculture. Michigan is home to hundreds of species of bees, butterflies, moths, wasps and other insects that have co-evolved with our native plants to form the very foundation of the many diverse natural communities found throughout the state, and many of these species are currently in peril. We all can play a role in supporting native pollinators, in our yards, by choosing to garden with native plant species! In this presentation, learn about the relationships between Michigan's pollinators and our native flora, and how to turn your backyard into a beautiful and vibrant refuge for these important insects.
