In 2019, Habitat Stewards Built a Pollinator Garden at Mathison Park. Native plants and perennial flowering plants make excellent habitat for birds, butterflies, and bees, providing shelter, places to raise young, and food sources.

Attract Birds, Butterflies and Bees to Your Yard or Balcony

Native Trees, Bushes, and Shrubs, like Huckleberry and Thimble Berry, support native pollinators, birds and butterflies, as well as the migratory species that are passing through. Include these plants in your landscaping.
