Nature Conservancy Canada is currently running a program called Small Acts of Conservation. Within the program, they hold photo contests, challenging people to help conserve nature in their own backyards.
One of those programs is called Power to the Pollinators.
You can make your yard a sanctuary for Canada’s native pollinators:
- Learn about native plant gardening and grow plants on your own to attract butterflies, bees and other pollinators.
- Create spaces in your yard for native bees to nest and overwinter by leaving dead tree branches and having open areas of soil in your garden.
- Build a bee hotel.
- Share on social media how you’re supporting Canada’s native pollinators, using #MySmallAct.
