Roadsides: Planting

for Pollinators



Roadsides is a program that encourages you to create habitat for native bees and other pollinators along roadsides, on cloverleafs, on unused urban land and in your garden. The little habitats created by volunteers like you are called Pollinator Patches.

Our native bees need our help.

Pollinators are in trouble -- not only the European Honey bees but our native bees as well. Their troubles begin with pests and diseases, continue with habitat loss and are finally topped by our use of pesticides such as Neonicotinoids.


You and I can improve the situation by creating pollinator patches in our communities.
