Local gardens provide protection for threatened pollinators

June 28, 2014

With the arrival of summer comes the activity of pollinators -- birds, bees, butterflies and more -- which are threatened by habitat loss, pesticides, pollution and climate change. To help them, the Penn State Center for Pollinator Research, the Penn State Master Gardener Program and The Arboretum at Penn State are partnering to create a large network of public and private pollinator gardens throughout central Pennsylvania.
