Xerces Society just announced the publication of a new book that you might want to add to your library. It’s called Attracting Native Pollinators: The Xerces Society Guide to Conserving North American Bees and Butterflies and Their Habitat.
Here’s their summary:
“The work of bees and other pollinators is something that touches us all through the food we eat, the clothes we wear, and the landscapes we enjoy.
Attracting Native Pollinators offers a window onto the fascinating lives of these insects and provides detailed information about how you can care for these vital animals wherever you live.
Whether you are an urban gardener, a suburban park manager, a working farmer, or caring for a nature reserve Attracting Native Pollinators has something for you.”
