Pollinator Pathway Project


The Pollinator Protector Project is an awareness initiative spearheaded by Mill Mountain Garden Club.  The project focuses on simple steps community members can take to protect pollinators through healthy yards and public spaces.  MMGC is working to build community interest and has the support of the Roanoke Valley Garden Club and other community groups.  Club members will be distributing signage, wildflower seeds, and Pollinator Protector bookmarks at area events in the spring.

To become a Pollinator Protector, follow these easy steps:

a. Avoid chemical use in yards and gardens, especially insecticides

b. Talk to your neighbors and friends about the importance of pollinators

c. Protect bee nests and caterpillar host plants

d. Grow native plants and trees

e. Consider converting some lawn to meadow

f. Visit the Xerces Society website and take the pollinator pledge.
