Bee a Friend to Pollinators!

 

The Ohio Federation of Soil and Water Conservation Districts is highlighting the importance of pollinators in our environment at the Farm Science Review.  Did you know that some sceintist believe one of every three bites of food we consume are possible because of hard working pollinators?

There are simple ways we can encourage pollinators such as bees, butterflies, bats, birds and beetles.  Planting native flowers that bloom at varying times and seasons and minimizing the use of pesticides are two easy ways we can help stabilize their enivronment.

Visit us at Conservation Park at the Farm Science Review September 22-24!
