Hi! I'm feeling Springy today with a high of 50 in MN.

I just heard about a website with comprehensive research and information on native plants and pollinators. It is xerces.org. A resource at the bottom of the page includes specific information for each region of the country. It includes a list of the most beneficial plants to plant that attract pollinators.

I am a member of the Xerces Society. It is a wonderful organization. I can't say enough good things about it. I'm glad you are publicizing the site. Thank You!

That is interesting. Who would have thought that one day invertebrates would become threatened too.
