Sustainability September: Pollination Hoop House

UPDATE 2023: the Pollination Hoop House is now the Native Pollinator Garden. Looking for a lovely place to visit this fall? Try the Pollination Hoop House, a stone's throw away from the beloved Orchid Range. The hoop house is a demonstration garden filled with pollinator-friendly flowers like those featured in our Bee-Friendly Flowers resources. There's always something in bloom here, whether it be early spring or through autumn frost. Fall is a particularly fabulous time to see bees, birds, and butterflies feasting on nectar, pollen, and seeds before the food resources between scarce in the colder months. Explore the Pollinator Hoop House in this resource, and prime yourself with pollinator and plant knowledge before seeing it in-person.

“We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.”

Foreword, A Sand County Almanac
