Butterfly garden at Pleasant GroveRecently there has been fear among scientists regarding the decline of the bee population. Many cite the loss of pollinators as a devastating blow to the food chain. Without pollinators, like bees, most plants cannot produce fruits and seeds. The fruits and seeds of flowering plants are an important food source for people and wildlife. This is why there is concern about how this will affect agriculture. Many experts view hazards in the environment as the cause of the decline.

Insects are the main pollinators, but so are hummingbirds and bats. Wildlife experts are working with communities to combat the problem and build an environment that increases the species of various pollinators. The Lake Monticello Wildlife Committee is teaming up with the Virginia Master Gardeners and Master Naturalists for a program about how we can help increase the pollinating population while building a better environment for them and for ourselves.

“The purpose is to expand the focus on wildlife habitats while supporting pollinators and a diverse population of wildlife,” said master gardener Sue Tepper. She will be one of three presenters, along with master gardener and master naturalist Walter Hussey, and Amber Houk, who will discuss beekeeping. Add a comment
