Ridges spending week highlighting pollinators

Governor Tony Evers has declared that Pollinator Week in Wisconsin will be from June 21st to June 27th, and more people are coming to understand how essential pollinators are. They carry pollen from plant to plant, creating pollen transfer and allowing reproduction of native plant species. Environmental Interpreter at the Ridges Sanctuary Anna Foster says a lot of people don’t realize that pollinators are also critical to agriculture.

 

 

Foster adds that it takes just a few square feet or a planting pot to build a pollinator garden. She says another key action is to spread awareness and to learn about pollinators in your area. Other practices for nurturing pollinators that have become popular in recent years include conducting proper use of pesticides or eliminating pesticide use in gardens. Ridges Sanctuary plans on observing Pollinator Week by highlighting the pollinator gardens they have in front of their building. They will also have a table inside their building with pollinator education resources.
