Please contact me to schedule a personal visit by one of APP’s experienced volunteers to learn how I can make my yard pollinator-friendly. Visits are less than one hour and include a fact sheet with helpful advice for getting started. There is no charge for this visit. All information, content, and materials available during the visit are for general informational purposes only.
Please join us in supporting birds, insects, and other wildlife in your yard and
• plant native pollinator-friendly plants,
• reduce the footprint of your lawn and mow it less frequently;
• avoid the use of pesticide sprays and lawn chemicals;
• remove invasive plants; and
• don’t remove leaves because they sustain birds, protect overwintering pollinators, and build living soil.
