With Spring, comes the many migratory birds and their favorite food – insects! While many are regarded as pests, most native insect species play a positive and crucial role in local ecosystems, both pollinating plants and sustaining populations of insectivores.
One great way to celebrate the upcoming Earth Day is to create healthy habitats in your own home or school yard. By planting native, drought-resistant flowering plants, you can help to establish a sustainable and attractive space for insects to thrive. And more insects means more of our feathered friends visiting us for a snack as they make their way north for the summer!
