Join Plant for Pollinators Challenge
The Plant for Pollinators Challenge is a public engagement campaign to increase pollinator habitat in the Greater Cincinnati region and beyond. From butterflies and bees to hummingbirds and moths, pollinators are critical to the health of our environment. They’re also important in our food production systems, as they pollinate one-third of the world’s crops. However, their populations are declining.
People can provide beautiful, vital habitat for pollinators by adding pollinator-friendly plants to their yards and landscapes while enjoying colorful blooms and butterflies all season long. Whether planting just a few pots or a larger garden, everyone can do real conservation at home to support our pollinator friends as they do their job to keep our environment healthy. Take our Plant for Pollinators Challenge here.

I’ve been working really hard to assist the pollinators since I learned about the crisis. I’ve always loved gardening and now I have a real purpose besides the enjoyment and beauty. I feel like I’m saving the planet one plant at a time. The zoo (Steve Foltz and the entire Botanical team) are doing a excellent job at increasing awareness to save our planet! Who knew pollinators were so important? No pollinators = No food for humans or animals. Thank you!!!!
I must admit that seeing the stunning images in this article makes me quite pleased.
Any suggestions of local Cincinnati shops to buy plants (preferably not just seeds)?
Nature is so colorful, everything is so beautiful. These plants and flowers are beautiful, as well as healing for some diseases.
I have to say that looking at the beautiful pictures in this article makes me very happy.
