There are 5 easy things you can do for Earth Day. While it may seem that climate change and saving the planet are overwhelming, you can contribute in a small but meaningful way.
The theme this year is “Protecting our Species.” This means protecting humans, too, but it starts with examining our own behavior. Nature as Neighbors has long been a supporter of protecting the environment and creatures that are affected by us.
A crucial component of natural plant and tree cultivation is pollination – fertilization spread by bees, butterflies, even hummingbirds. Today, we are finding this is more important than ever, so we are sending out seed packets to help in this cause. Let us know if you’d like a free sample.
A few years back, we set up a “Bee and Bee” and immediately started seeing the mason bee pollinators emerge. Even after harsh winters, they return every spring. And they are here again! Bees are true survivors when they have our support.
There are many variations of honey and bumblebees out there to see. Our biggest concern is they may be threatened due to overuse of pesticides and destruction of their natural habitat.
