It's National Pollinator Week: Could native plant gardening help save the bees?

Check out this awesome interview in celebration of National Pollinator Week with our Environmental Educator, Alyssa Taylor! Pollinators are declining worldwide due to factors like loss of habitat, pesticides, climate change, and disease. Non-native species are another cause. Fortunately, you can help these key players in our planet’s ecosystems — and all you need is a patio or a yard.
https://bit.ly/3hmpZ2z

National Pollinator Week is a celebration of bees, wasps, butterflies, moths — and yes, even flies. These indispensable little insects are vital to agriculture, the economy, and essentially human existence. But pollinator populations have been declining for decades. Fortunately, you can help these...

Your park is gorgeous. I feel blessed to have had the chance to capture some great images on Wednesday between the thunderstorms. Here's one of the gorgeous Egrets that I was able get a portrait sitting with :) Airlie Gardens
The garden is so beautiful this time of the year! Love, love love it!
Thank you for the beautiful memories...
Please delete if not allowed. I have Enchanted Arlie tickets for 6:30 tonight but really need them for Monday night. Does anyone have tickets they can swap with me?
Absolutely loved this place!

Giant squirrel in my house. Let the painting begin!!
I was there recently taking pics of my daughter in her cap and gown and had a very unpleasant experience with the staff. They insisted I pay them another 50.00 dollars in addition to the admission fee to take pictures with my IPhone. We had no professional photographer or props, just her wearing a cap and gown. The most embarrassing part of the day is when a staff member started yelling at me running across the parking lot to inform me that they needed more money. Thanks for supporting the class of 2020. I will not visit or support this place ever again.
Our milkweed seeds have sprouted! Ready to transplant them this weekend. 🐛🔜 🦋
Are the gardens pretty to walk through beginning of March?
Any selling their tickets? Need 3!
Had a great time yesterday at Airlie Gardens! So did this bee.
