Preserving Wisconsin’s Prairies: What Can You Do?

Click the title above which is linked to a news story about how you can help bring pollinators to your yard. You can start with simply adding three plants to your yard; one type of milkweed, one type of mint, and one favorite flower of your choosing. And to really have an impact, encourage your neighbors to do the same. To find out how to start native plants from seed, consider attending our January meeting at the Green Bay Botanical gardens.
