While traditional pollinator gardens are excellent ways to provide valuable food and habitat for bees, pollinator conservation does not need to be a strictly aesthetic endeavor. Learn about pollinator biology and why managed and native bees are critical for plant reproduction and food production, as well as the resources obtained by bees during the act of pollination. By taking advantage of this close plant-pollinator association, gardeners and landscapers alike can provide valuable pollinator resources while incorporating food-based landscaping in urban and suburban environments. Fruit and vegetable farmers can also utilize conservation strips to enhance crop pollination. (Eligible for 1 LA CES/HSW credit)
