McGough Nature Park Pollinator Garden

Our new pollinator garden is filled with many different flowering plants such as, sage, milkweed and black eyed Susans. Monarchs, zebra longwings, and white peacock butterflies, as well as honey and green sweat bees are just a few of the pollinators seen in the garden.

Pollinators like honey bees and butterflies are incredibly important to our environment. Not only are they are a food source for many animals such as bats and birds but they are crucial pollinators that pollinate 1/3 of the food we eat, including over 130 fruits and vegetables . Pollinator gardens are a way to help out our pollinator species because of the declining number of bees and butterflies in recent years due to pesticides and pollution.

When you stop by our park, come and bring your lunch, and sit at the picnic table and enjoy nature's beauty in our new pollinator garden.
