Instead of a butterfly garden, perhaps we need a “Pollinators Garden” in McIntire Park East!

Two more days to “Bee” a founder:
Most pollinators throughout North America are trending downward in population; some are facing a drastic decline, and others are believed to have already gone extinct. The disappearance of Honey Bees CCD, or “Colony Collapse Disorder” has been widely known for years now, but native pollinators aren’t as well managed and documented as honey bees, so their numbers have been harder to study. When pollinators disappear, eco-systems and food chains collapse.
