So wonderful to hear that there are 600,000 pollinator gardens just in the US! It must be exciting for a 9 year old to be a Pollinator Ambassador and working with others who care about the environment. More power to him!

If I lived in Virginia near there, I'd attend. Dave should take his film crew and record his presentation.
Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.

This is great! We need to get the message out to state and fed highway depts. so much ground wasted on grass! Not to mention so many resources wasted on growing grass just to mow it off and throw it away! Why not native flowering species to feed the pollinators??
Look at Texas.

The Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department now has about 200,00 of acres of wildflowers along roads and highways. Operation Wildflower is working with sponsors to establish new wildflower populations. A Wild Flower Sign program helps identify wildflower areas sponsored by clubs, groups, and businesses.http://www.arkansashighways.com/wildflower_program/wildflower.aspx

That's wonderful, Bea! I hope more states are doing this sort of thing.

I let cosmos self-seed and grow in my garden. It blooms after my daylilies and hides all the foliage. There are so many bees and butterflies on it and it makes for a wonderful late summer and fall show. I love seeing all the activity!
